BEGIN with the water in a large, dutch oven/stock pot on Med heat. Chop/cube ALL above, needed ingredients and place them into the pot. ADD IN the rice, cheese, herbs, and spices (REDUCE HEAT to med-low/STIRRING occasionally) and COOK for approximately 40 minutes (making SURE that 'potatoes' are done.)

COOK'S NOTE: To 'shorten cook time,' simply boil cubed potatoes for about 10 minutes (skin-on) and place them into the Chowder Mixture after they've cooked.



SIDE BITE: TRY THIS Recipe done with a 'Slow Cooker/Crock Pot' method, too!

SIDE BITE: SERVE with 'Side Salad' and a crispy, 'French Loaf' or 'Sour Dough!'

SIDE BITE: THIS type of 'thick, Chowder' is PERFECT for serving INSIDE of Sour Dough, Bread Loaves!
