It goes like this:
Crispy up 8 slices of bacon. I like to chop mine before cooking, but do whatever you want.
Remove bacon and let it drain on a paper towel. Leave the bacon grease in pan.
Saute the onions in the bacon grease. When onions are soft, remove and let sit with bacon for a bit.
Cube up 4 cups of potatoes and add to pot with 1 cup of water. Cook until tender.
To the water and potatoes add 1 can cream of chicken soup, 1 cup sour cream, 1 3/4 cup milk, bacon and onions.
Simmer chowder, but do not boil.
Garnish with cheese, bacon and green onions.
Here is the exact recipe my mom and I still use:
P.S. I don't know the exact origin of this recipe, but we didn't create it!
