Palmetto Pimento Cheese Chowder


Serves 4-6
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 1 green pepper, diced
  • 3 stalks celery, diced
  • 5 carrots, diced
  • 1/2 cup butter or oil
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 49.5 oz can Chicken Broth
  • 1 quart Half and Half
  • 12-24oz Palmetto Cheese
  • Bacon
  • Scallions
  • Oyster Crackers


  1. In a large soup pot on medium-high heat place oil, onions, peppers, celery, and carrots. Saute until vegetables a slightly tender.
  2. Add 1 cup of flour and stir. Cook for 2 minutes. This will help thicken the chowder.
  3. Add 1 can of chicken broth and bring to a boil, stirring occasionally.
  4. Add 1 quart of half and half and cook for 15 minutes until soup thickens. You will want to stir frequently to keep your soup from scorching on the bottom of the pan. Medium heat works best.
  5. Add Palmetto Cheese. We added 12oz of Original and 6oz of Jalapeno. This gives the soup a little bit of heat and great flavor.
  6. Salt and pepper to your taste.
  7. Brown off your bacon, chop and set aside.
  8. Slice green onions and set aside.
  9. To serve sprinkle with bacon, scallions and oyster crackers.
