Seafood Chowder is so easy and so delicious! I love recipes that are easy to prepare and contains items in your pantry and freezer. This Chowder fits the bill. My friend and former co-worker, Cyndi, shared this with me a few years ago and it’s a regular on my winter menu.
Hope you enjoy as much as I do!
