"I used milk instead of whipping cream (didn't have any) and mozzarella instead of cheddar (didn't have any of that either)"

"This is probably my favorite chowder. My mother made this just to try it out and we couldn't stop eating it. I thought I was going to explode! Thanks so much for adding such a great recipe to our family cook books."
