You can kiss your diet goodbye with this rich and intoxicating soup (definition = "fattening as all heck but oh so good!). Even as your making this melting the butter and cream cheese - your thinking "I'm gonna die from clogging my arteries" but after you taste it - you don't give a darn! If you like clam chowders and are willing to splurge for a night I'd say make this EASY & Quick (did I mention delicious?) soup!! It literally took me 25 min from start to finish!! Oh- in addition to the shrimp I added a can of drained clams and added the milk to our preferred consistency! Thanks Suzanne for this great recipe - and for temporarily increasing my dress size!! (one situp errr...two situps...) Read More

Honestly it just wasn't for me. It seemed to be missing something. It was at least worth trying though. Thank you! Read More

I made a few low-fat changes to this recipe and they worked well. I substituted the cream cheese with fat-free neufchatel and in lieu of cream of potato soup I used fat free cream of mushroom. I took the suggestion of adding a variety of seafood. Easy guilt-free and delicious. Doesn't get much better than that! Read More

I've made this soup atleast 20 times now. I purposely waited to rate this.. this is a perfect simple recipe everyone asks for it but I act like its a secret. The key is getting the cream cheese melted I use sweet corn and if you can cut some off a cob even better. And I use 1 can of cream of celery instead..that seems to make it better..if thats possible.

One word...FAB-U-LOUS! My husband gave it a 10 and said it was the best soup he's had in a while! Yes it's really rich and fattening but oh so good. I used full-lead butter but the lower fat neufchatel cheese to cut out a little of the calories. I also used a can of sweet corn undrained which isn't specified one way or the other in the recipe. I ended up using 1 1/2 cups of 1% milk to get the perfect consistency for our tastes. I also cooked it a little longer than recommended after I added the shrimp as they seemed undercooked to me straight out of the bag. I wanted to taste the recipe as listed so I didn't add any seasonings until after it was in the bowl. We like a little more flavor so I would say adding some hot red pepper flakes a little sea salt and fresh ground pepper really took it over the top. This is one of those dishes you can't make too often 'cause it's not the healthiest thing you'll ever eat but the flavor is company-worthy fantastic so we will be treating ourselves to this awesome soup as often as our waist lines will allow. Thanks for posting! Read More

Delicious and really simple. I have made this soup several times and it has quickly become one of our favorites. Only had 1 can of potato soup so used a can of cream of mushroom soup which added a nice little twist. Makes a great base for clam chowder. Read More

Super-easy super-tasty. If I could give this more than 5 stars I would. I made it almost exactly as written only changing a few things: to cut down on the fat I used 1/2 the amount of butter and reduced-fat cream cheese. Also based on what other reviewers suggested I added a bottle of clam juice with a can of crab meat before simmering. This was still very rich very tasty and made plenty for our family of 4 (three of whom... the guys... are big eaters). Serve with crackers and a salad and there's dinner! Read More

Very good soup! It seemed a bit thick so I added a 6 oz bottle of clam juice and about a cup of 2% milk. Also added about a tablespoon of Tony Cachere's Creole Seasoning. Delicious! Read More
