This is my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE warm soup for a cold winter night, and it's almost better as leftovers! Very easy and quick. This soup is perfect for almost any white fish.

Did recipe as written except removed the condensed milk it was fantastic without and used some frozen shredded potatoes (only had one whole potato). Used leftover white fish of sorts and made for a great meal out of something I hate eating (leftover fish...yuk). Everyone (1 yr old 2 yr old 13 yr. old 35 yr olds) liked it. No where in this recipe was there sweetness to it....joshcoctions used sweetened condensed milk...bet you never do that again. Read More

I found this awesome and easy and I live in Glosta!! I keep seeing comments w/ condensed milk...It's evaporated milk. Big difference..Maybe that's why it was "cloyingly sweet" joshcocations! Add a cornstarch/water mixture if you want it thicker! Read More

Yummy! Just made this and it was tasty!!! The only things I enhanced was added celery...you gotta have celery in soup garlic powder and a sprinkle of smoked paprika on top when serving. Husband made some roasted garlic croutons which added a delicious flavor. It's a keeper and really simple to prepare. Read More

Great soup! Was in a hurry so I used precooked bacon and 3 cups diced frozen potatoes. I also used chicken stock in place of the water and added 2 Tbsp flour to pot after onions were soft to help thicken. Is it possible Joshcoctions may have used sweetened condensed milk instead of evaporated??? Our chowder wasn't sweet and I know I always have to read the label to make sure I'm grabbing the right one!:) Read More

This was good. I followed the suggestion of one other person and added a little cream and left out the milk. I did use the condensed milk. My husband cleaned his bowl and that's always the key to whether I will make it again. A lot of times something I think is great gets a so-so reaction from him. Read More
