Fantastic shrimp chowder. The whole family loved it. It is definitely scheduled on the menu again and again!
Oh ok... I see now. When you click on Print the cream cheese shows up in ingredient list. I don't know why it wasn't showing up when I was just viewing the recipe. Temperamental computers.

I was really wary of making this recipe, because I figured it would just taste like canned soups. But, I was hungry, and had all of the ingredients in my pantry and freezer, so I took my changes. I made just two changes. I put cut up large raw shrimp into the soup and cooked it that way in order to get more shrimp flavor. Plus, I added a teaspoon of minced garlic. Super yummy! I think the suggestion by sherwood1225 of adding pimentos and bacon sounds like perfection! I'll keep this recipe, and make it again.
Also added pimentos and bacon for color and flavor.
This is really a great chowder. Next time I make it I will throw in some extra diced potatoes to make it thicker; I usually make half the recipe for the two of us. Perfect recipe as is and quick to make with on hand items. Thanks for the recipe!
I go to this site to find recipes and am so disappointed when I find canned soups and vegetables in the ingredients. that's not cooking, Campbells already did it for you.

Excellent soup. Prefer it with cream of shrimp soup to replace the cream of chicken which adds a nice chowder flavor.
This is the first time I've been let down by my fellow reviewers. I liked the suggestion of adding crab, and I ruined this dish. The recipe, as written, was excellent, until I added half a pound of lump crab. The chowder immediately smelled and tasted "fishy." The five star rating is for the original recipe, which I'll definitely make again, exactly as it was originally written.
