This creamy full-flavored soup is as perfect for company as it is for the family. If you make the chowder ahead, reheat, then add the spinach just before serving.

It's great, yes. BUT...what is "cajun" about it? lol The base of the soup is very common to what you'd find in a number of other soups which you can "customize" a good bit, i.e. add celery, carrots, corn, type of peppers you use, make it thicker/thinner, etc. Would I make it again(?)...no bout adout it :) Very easy. Again, add/subtract ingredients to your taste. W/o looking at the recipe right now, I think I added pepper flakes for some heat, used a bit of bay seasoning, and substituted some HEAVY CREAM for some of the milk, for richness. But yes, VERY flavorful and with these ingredients on hand, you've got a home run & it's sure to please all who you care to share it with. Like a/other food you prepare, taste as you go & season to taste with the bay seasoning, salt/pepper, etc. My wife makes the "knock off" from Olive Garden, the "Zuppa" I think it's called..it used sausage, and it's basically the same o/wise.

Really enjoyed it. I added bacon and celery too. Two of my kids don't like shrimp so I put that in after I scooped their's. Read More

This was excellent! I like my soup's on the thin side and this was perfect for me. If you want it more on the chowder side you might want to increase the flour to 3 tablespoons. If you like things spicy add a couple dashes of Old Bay seasoning just for kicks. The leftovers hold up well in this and that is always an extra bonus for me. Hat's off from this soup lover Potatoes USA! Read More

Was a great recipe and easy to make I used some cumin instead of powdered mustard and some Creole Seasoning to add a little zest to it. I will definitely make it again easy to play around with some different options. Read More

So delicious! A new favorite of mine. The most time consuming part is chopping up your veggies and such, which can be simplified if you meal plan & prep before dinner time. ?? Read More
