Chunky Seafood Chowder Recipe

Chunky Seafood Chowder Recipe

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
