Delicious hearty chowder great on a cold day! Tastes gourmet but is very easy! My husband raves when I make this. I serve it with croissants.

I only made one substitution--instead of half-n-half I used one can evaporated milk. I also added a touch of Frank's Hot Sauce. I was surprized by this soup it wasn't bad. I think this would make a good clam chowder using canned clams as well. I'd make this again but I'd play with the recipe a bit. Read More

This chowder was FABULOUS! We have told everyone about it since I made it. Instead of the half-and-half I used 3/4 cup whipping cream and 3/4 skim milk. I also added about 3 additional tablespoons of skim milk during cooking to thing the chowder just a bit. Sprinkled with a few bacon bits and some sharp cheddar at serving. Read More

The roomates and I loved this. I made a couple changes including: adding 1 can of reg. corn doubling the green onion and cooking reg. shrimp in garlic butter instead of canned shrimp. Great recipe. will use again and maybe add celery? Read More

I used a can of clams instead of shrimp and was thoroughly overjoyed with this super-easy recipe's flavors. Though next time to suit my own tastes I will used more bacon more cayenne pepper and replace 1/4 to 1/2 cup of the half-and-half with milk. Read More

I recommend using the creamed corn the recipe calls for instead of regular. The slightly sweet taste of the creamed version pulls the whole recipe together. It's even better the next day and heats up nicely. I added an extra can of shrimp and a splash of milk. This was the best chowder I've over had! ETA For a quick put together I use a full 2.8 ounce package of real bacon pieces. Read More
