READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by grumblebee

No chopping or prep work involved! Just dump everything in a bit pot and heat. This creamy chowder is so simple but delicious -- it's hard to believe something so good is so easy to make!

I can't give this a specific number of stars (although I assume it's great as-written) because I made wholesale changes to the recipe -- scallops, potatoes, jalapeno, etc. Thank you so much for posting, though, because it gave me the confidence to whip up a seafood chowder in an instant... and with yummy results!
