This is my version of cheeseburger soup that is served in restaurants. Its my husband's favorite kind of soup so I came up with my own version just for him. He loves the addition of "fries" and has been known to squirt a little ketchup in his bowl too. It's hearty and delicious even if you don't add the ketchup.

Wow! We really do think this tastes like a cheeseburger with a side of fries ... only in chowder form. It's full of rich, savory flavor with the perfect amount of seasoning. This chowder recipe is easy to prepare and cooks fast. We became instant fans of this full-flavored soup. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
