Recipe Comments and Reviews


This chowder is absolutely delicious! And it looks so elegant, perfect for a holiday appetizer!


Wonderful. I have made it three times (twice with half and half, cod fish, shrimp and scallops; once with evaporated milk , shrimp and scallops - both tasted great.) I didn't have corn with red and green peppers so used canned corn and red, orange, yellow and green peppers once (always have cut up peppers in the freezer.) Other 2 times I only had creamed corn with pieces of pepper as above and it actually tasted better (didn't think that was possible) .


This was excellent! Even my husband who does not generally like "cream" based soups enjoyed and said it was tasty. Didn't have corn with peppers so I just used a can of regular corn; also used a vidalia onion. This would probably also work well with chicken. I can't wait to have the leftovers for lunch tomorrow.
