  • 2 cups diced potatoes
  • 3/4 cup chopped onion
  • 2 carrots, sliced
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery
  • 1/4 cup margarine
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 - 2 cups shredded old cheddar cheese
  • 1 teaspoon parsley flakes
  • 1 - 28 oz (796 ml) can of diced tomatoes, drained


  1. In a large pot, combine the diced potatoes, chopped onion, sliced carrots, and chopped celery. Add enough water to cover the vegetables, and cook until they are tender. Do not drain the water.
  2. In another saucepan, melt the margarine over medium heat. Stir in the flour, salt, pepper, dry mustard, and Worcestershire sauce. Gradually whisk in the milk and cook until the mixture thickens.
  3. Add the shredded cheddar cheese to the saucepan with the thickened milk mixture, and stir until the cheese is melted and the sauce is smooth.
  4. Pour the cheese sauce into the pot with the cooked vegetables (do not drain the water from the vegetables), and stir well to combine. Add the parsley flakes and the drained diced tomatoes, and stir gently to avoid curdling.
  5. Heat the chowder over low heat, but do not let it boil after adding the tomatoes, as it may curdle. Serve hot, and enjoy!
  6. Optionally, ladle the Potato Cheddar Chowder into bowls. Garnish with chopped fresh parsley and shredded cheddar cheese on top for a pop of colour.
  7. Serve hot with crusty bread or crackers on the side for added crunch and texture.

Note: You can add more shredded old cheddar cheese if you prefer a cheesier sauce. Adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper to taste.
