Introduction

This is one of my families favorite chowders. It has been a huge it at pot lucks and church parties too. I have substituted a bottle of real bacon bits for the ham also. I usually make this with the end of a spiral sliced ham that is leftover from Easter or Christmas dinner.

You can easily cut the calories by cutting down the cheese. I've used shard cheddar and only used one cup with excellent results. I have also used turkey ham, which is very lean. I used turkey ham when I entered this.
