    Very, very good! Everyone enjoyed it. I added some carrot for extra veggie, otherwise made it just as it says to.

    This is a really good chowder. I served it with ciabatta cheese bread.

    I added a extra cup of milk, 1 tbsp of flour, and 1/2 C of corn for my own unique chowder (extra dill to taste)

    This chowder is delicious. I added chopped broccoli (which I steamed for just a few minutes), packaged cubed ham, and used packaged diced potatoes with onion which saved prep and cooking time. I also added chives, parsley and dry ranch seasoning mix. Will definitely make again and again!
