Yep this is as tasty as all the other types of chowder I have had. I made using canned artichoke hearts so there was no cleaning or steaming involved which made this a supper easy recipe, whole milk and cut the butter down to 1/4 cup because I was using whole milk. While we enjoyed this a whole lot the garlic is a bit strong and next time I might only use 3 cloves instead of 4. Thanks for the post.
