This is a rich, creamy, extremely flavorful, chowder house-quality seafood chowder! Once your guests have tasted it, they won't be able to stop eating. It's even great re-heated for leftovers. Best results if the chowder is allowed to sit in the fridge overnight and then heated in a slow cooker the next day! Absolutely delicious!
