Potato and Kielbasa Chowder

Gina Gamble


This is the BEST Chowder on a Cold Winters day. Or any time you are craving it!!!
You can also cook on top of stove for 2 hours on medium-low.

To lower the calories you could easily substitute half & half for the cream, use low-fat or fat free cheese and a turkey kielbasa.
