I love soup! It may be my love for fall and cold weather that really it all came from. Nothing beats soup on a cold fall day and the fireplace on. It's the perfect combination. This Cheesy Vegetable Chowder recipe was one that my husband always ate growing up. I make it just a little different but he thought it tasted just as good! luckily anything with cheese in it or on it my kids will eat up so this recipe was a winner with the entire family.

How to Make Cheesy Vegetable Chowder:
When working on your cheese sauce I like adding my cheese about ½ cup at a time. This way it can melt and blend and doesn't get lumpy.
Step five: Now that your veggies are all cooked and tender and your cheese sauce is ready you can add the cheese sauce to the prepared soup. Pour cheese sauce into the soup and stir until well combined. Serve and enjoy!

Am I missing something....when do I add the half and half and the milk?
Hi Alisha, you add these in on step three while making the cheese sauce. I hope you enjoy the recipe!
Awesome! Thank you! Also is this something I could make in the early afternoon and just leave on the stove? (With the stove off, of course) We have some running to do this evening and I'd love to come home to it already done
I love making this ahead of time. I usually let it cool and place it in the fridge pot and all then just warm it up when it's dinner time! =)
Can I leave the half n half out?
Yes you can. I would add the same amount of regular milk or broth to make sure you have enough liquid.
This looks delicious!
