How to Make Quick & Easy Potato Chowder


  1. dice potatoes and rise till water is clear( you may peel potatoes but I left the skins on )
  2. saute onions, bell peppers for about 10 min. just before they start to carmelize...while they are cooking, take clean potatoes and microwave them in covered plastic container for 5 min.on high
  3. after potatoes are done, add diced ham to saute mixture and let cook for 2 min.or until a tad brown...then add some salt, pepper,garlic powder,thyme & paprika to taste...throw in potatoes and stir to incorporated
  4. cover with water and let simmer for about 20 min. stirring every 5 min....once 20 min. has passed take a potato masher and rough mash some of the potatoes...add milk and let cook another 10-15 min. or until soup starts to thicken..make sure it's seasoned to taste
  5. once you've adjusted your seasoning, turn off heat and add cheese stirring until melted...let sit 5-10 min..get bowls ready and enjoy..=)
