I was disappointed with this recipe. The broth was very thin, and I thought it needed more flavor. The next time I make it, I will definitely use more flour and spices. The broth was the texture of soup; not a chowder.

Great recipe, I did add a little more flour as we like it a bit more thicker. Flavor and taste was so nice would defintely make it again. One of the better ones we have tried.
