    This recipe as written is quite bland. I added more salt and pepper, some crushed red peppers and a little honey. It was good, but still needs a little more tweaking if I make it again

    This is an excellent recipe and a very easy chowder. I did add hot sauce for a little more flavor as when I read the recipe I thought it needed it.

    I subbed in seafood broth in lieu of chicken broth with a 1/2 tea of Texas Pete. Extra sharp cheddar at the end. I'm calling this a chowder now. It was very good.

    The best thing about this soup is how easy it is! I used a hand blender to purée half the soup, which I highly recommend. I also added 1/4 tsp chipotle pepper bc I thought it needed a kick. I used almond milk (30 cals/cup!!), and it worked great. Great soup.

    It was good, I just added one item to it, 2 cups of cheddar cheese. I thought the soup needed something added to it, once I added the cheese, it was great.
