Confetti Chowder! It’s not a secret that our family loves soup and I don’t think there’s a soup I have met that I didn’t love! My kids claim that their dad is the soup guru and the truth is that really loves to cook.
I never get credit when I make or help with the soup but that’s okay because my husband can keep that badge of honor. I kind of had a stressful week and when that happens I want comfort food. Through all the stress, confetti chowder was born.
I have had a couple of different soup recipes with similar ingredients but this just seems to have a flavor all its own! It will make you happy!
What I love about this chowder, is that it is quick and easy and is ready in minutes!
