Chunky Seafood Chowder Recipe

Publisher Photo
This creamy chowder brimming with tender potato and crab tastes so good guests will never guess it starts with canned soup. Half-and-half cream makes it rich enough for special occasions. I often serve it with crackers or French bread after a sporting event or outing. -Irene Craigue, Claremont, New Hampshire

MY REVIEW

"I've prepared this chowder many time over the years and have loved it! One time, I had the idea to also add a drained small can of baby shrimp and a drained can of baby clams (I supposed you could used minced, however) just to "beef" up the seafood aspect of it. With a side salad and some warmed crusty bread it truly is a keeper!"

"Easy and delicious. I used a small package of frozen shrimp instead of the crab. My picky 8 year old ate two bowls. Yum!"
