THRIVE Life Ham and Potato Chowder

In our house we are big on one pot meals.  Its easy to make and easy to clean up!  We made this dish with our Roast Beef Dices instead of ham and it was fabulous!  The cheese makes it nice an rich and the chives give it a little bit of zip!  The recipe calls for chopped onions and we used the new sliced onions.  They are by far our favorite version of onions.  They are packed full of flavor without being too powerful and they re-hydrate great!
