Cauliflower Chowder

Bacon Cheddar Cauliflower Chowder | Flying on Jess FuelAutumn is in the air.  I have a few super easy 20 minutes soups for when you are in a hurry.  The first one is Cauliflower Chowder.  This chowder is really yummy even if I am using canned soups.  Give it a try, you won't be disappointed. 

1-10 oz. pkg frozen cauliflower
1/2 cup hot water
2- 10 3/4 oz cans condensed cream of potato soup
2 cups milk
1 cup Swiss cheese (shredded)
1/8 tsp. nutmeg
Diced cooked bacon (optional)
Green onions Chopped (optional)

In a large saucepan combine the frozen cauliflower and 1/2 cup water.  Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer about 5 minutes until the cauliflower is tender. DO NOT DRAIN.  Using a potato masher, slightly mash the cauliflower.  Stir in potato soup, milk, cheese and nutmeg.  Give it stir and continue to simmer about 3-4 minutes or until heated through.  To Serve: Ladle chowder into individual bowl.  If desired top with bacon, green onion and a sprinkling of cheese. Crusty bread goes really well.  Delish!!!! Enjoy.
