"Delicious chowder. I altered the recipe by adding a stick of celery, chopped, and a cup of grated cheddar cheese. I omitted the thyme. I would make it again!"

"Not impressed-I added the creamed corn as one reader suggested, but I still found this rather tasteless"

"I really liked it! It was very quick and simple. And I added celery and it was very good if you like a little crunch to your soup.."

"It was a little soupy. But overall it was a good soup and very filling and tastefull. I would make it again:)"

"I would make this recipe again because it was simple and quick to make; however, it did come out pretty soupy. To thicken it up, I added about a 1/2 cup of flour to the milk. I also think it lacked a little flavor so I spiced it just a bit with some cayenne pepper and cheese. After those minor adjustments, it turned out pretty yummy.."

"Very good. I added a can of cream corn as well. I think that without 2 cans of corn it would have been too soupy."

"I think this chowder sucked"

"Very good recipe but wanted it a bit thicker so added in 2 oz cream cheese and 4 tabls. butter and that did the trick! Also needed to add more salt and pepper too. But if you want a low fat chowder leave out the cream cheese and butter!!!"
