New This Month

Corn, bell peppers, and green beans give this hearty soup its fresh, summery flavor; make a batch now, then freeze for up to 6 months.

Cook's Notes

If you plan to freeze the soup, cook the green beans for a few minutes less than called for in step 4; this will help them retain their crunch after the soup is reheated. Cool chowder completely before transferring to airtight containers. Leave 1 inch of space at the top.

    Has anyone tried making this with lactose-free milk? or some type of milk alternative?

      I use unsweetened almond milk for nearly everything that calls for milk. It may slightly alter the flavor but not enough to matter to me.

    Great recipe! I made it with cauliflower instead of potato to keep the carbs down. I also added 1/2 teaspoon cayenne powder to add a little extra flavor. I made it to freeze and I think the next time I will add the green beans after it has cooled a little and cook them when I defrost. I under cooked them by half the time, but they still seemed to cook all the way through as it cooled.

    My boyfriend and I both loved this soup. Definitely a nice 'comfort soup'! I may try a cube of chicken bouillon next time just for fun. Or perhaps some turkey bacon for my man. ( I'm a veggie). Diana, I don't own a slow cooker so I'm not sure if you could use one.

    I really liked this soup. I disagree with geeyouknit. I didn't need any extra salt. It does make a lot, but it was very good out of the freezer.

    The recipe alone doesn't yield a lot of flavor. I added a lot of kosher salt and some chicken boullion for depth. Massive amount of soup. Next time, I'll cut the recipe in half.
