I have to confess something: I never liked potato soups! They were either too watery, not enough potatoes or too much cream. But the following potato soup recipe is THE best potato chowder recipe I have ever tasted (and it’s not because I made it). It has the perfect ingredients, right amount of potatoes and most of all, it’s deliciously creamy. Trust me, YOU WANT to know my secret ingredient! It’s Carnation® Evaporated Milk! It has less water than milk and adds such a rich texture to this fall soup recipe. Read the following directions to make this easy healthy soup recipe

I have been using Carnation® Evaporated Milk a lot lately. I used it in this delicious butternut squash soup recipe. I also use it in my everyday dishes, like homemade mac and cheese, lasagna recipes and more. I like how easy and simple it is to use.
The Carnation® Evaporated Milk website has tons of recipes, from appetizers to desserts, so I never run out of ideas. Carnation® Evaporated Milk has been helping Canadians bake delicious recipes, like pumpkin pie and fudge, for years. Make sure to check out their website and get inspired by their ideas.

It was so creamy, rich and good that I had to make a second batch the following day. I tried with Carnation® Regular, 2% and Fat Free Evaporated Milk. I find they have the same creaminess. It’s a win-win: less fat for the same creaminess and texture.
