Reviews for Low-Fat Shrimp Chowder
"I made this about a year ago and just remembered it and wanted to make it again. I really loved it! I took some to my daughter's house for her family and my son-in-law, who had taken some to work for lunch, called me after eating it and raved about it. Going to make again very soon."
