Cowboy Chowder

Brandi Kirkpatrick


Okay, this is a recipe from Cheeseburger Soup I) that I completely changed. First off, it was NOTHING like a cheeseburger. Secondly, it needed a MAJOR flavor kick. Also, I made it with regular cheddar cheese but a reviewer suggested Velveeta for a more creamy soup.
This is also one of those recipes you can toss more stuff in! Corn, beans, peppers, etc.
Have fun with it and make it yours!!!
I also serve mine with a healthy sprinkling of chili powder on top!
