Cheddar Chowder is a hearty soup ideal for the winter months. It is not hard to make and can be prepared quickly. There is no meat in it but you could probably add some chicken or clams. It's also highly flexible so you can add, remove, or change ingredients entirely to suit your taste. I had it once with broccoli instead of cauliflower and it still tasted good.
