The best way to store leftover chowder is to keep it in an airtight container in the fridge. This will maximize the life of your leftovers, but be sure to let the leftovers cool to room temperature before covering them and placing them in the fridge. This will help to prevent bacteria from growing in the warm spots of the chowder while in the fridge. Cooked ham chowder will last for 3 to 4 days.

Substitutions and Variations

Variation: Add cheese. A good way to add to the creamy texture and flavors of the dish is to add cheese to the recipe. A sharp cheese like cheddar, which is a usual compliment to baked potatoes, would be a spectacular choice to add more flavor to this chowder.

Variation: Add bacon. Much like the previous element, adding bacon bits and even sour cream to the top of your chowder adds a crunchy texture that breaks up the creaminess.
