This is easily my family's favorite chowder. The recipe is quite simple to make and doesn't need to simmer for long.

"The recipe was a little thin and it needed more flavor. I would add more garlic the next time I make it. With a few tweaks it's a great recipe"

"Very good soup, except I did change a few things. I added celery with the potatoes and onions, did not use the seafood seasoning. Instead of velveeta, I used 4 ounces of lite cream cheese. I also added some dillweed, red pepper flakes and black pepper for spice. I also added a fresh chopped tomato and about a cup of fresh sliced spinach. I also used a little corn starch and water to thicken it up, a little too loose for a chowder."
