Good recipe! Not a "true" chowder however. That's the reason for the 4 instead of 5 stars. I used the water from cottage roll making and just boiled the beans seperately to avoid losing too much liquid. I added: potatoes, sweet potatoes , and celery (I didn't have carrots or green pepper). I took before and after pictures for fairness because as a soup it's very good and people may like it that way, I did, but I went ahead and made a chowder version and pic'd that too(because well now that I've been thinking about chowder ALL day, I had to :) ). I mashed 1/3 of the beans to thicken it (before adding to soup) and added 2-3 cups of milk, still not as thick as I'd prefer. It's very good both ways, Yum. Thank you for posting Libby1, I have saved this recipe and WILL be making it both ways again and again!
