Deee-licious! I cut way back on the chipotle pepper for my kids. I only used 3/4 on one. I also had to use chicken stock instead of clam juice. Very tasty, will make again for sure.
Very good,I made it just like the recipe said, except I used canned Crab meat, Also 1 can of clams plus the clam juice. Be careful of how much of the chipotle chiles in adobo sauce that you use, Unless you like it really hot. I used 1&1/2 chiles (seeds removed) it was a little to spicey for us, but very good tasting except for that.The corn cob does add a lot of flavor. I will be making this again but with less chile's. Thank you Rita for posting the recipe.
Excellent recipe - DH said it was better than our local fish place. I did make a few changes: 1) Used 1/2 crab and 1/2 shrimp. Crab is a little rich for me. 1 lb of crab really flaovered it and there was lots of it. 2) Only 1 chipotle - and that was just the right spice for me! 3) Forgot to buy clam juice - so I used chicken stock. I used pastuerized crab in the refrigerator case and did not drain it - so that helped make up the difference. 4) Used half and half and a bit of skim milk instead of the cream. - A bit thin - but I like my chowder thin. Very quick and Easy - definitely in my regular rotation
We loved it!
I used only one potatoe and next time I would cook the potatoe first before adding it to the soup. I didn't have clam broth but I used a lobster base instead and it added an even richer taste. I pureed the soup in the pot, trying to break up the chunks of potatoe and then I added the crab last. Watch those chipotle chiles. Sometimes they can be quite hot. Very easy to throw together, especially if you use frozen corn.
This is the BEST Crab chowder I have ever eaten!!!!! I couldn't find clam broth, so I used the same amount of chicken stock. I cut the recipe in half, because I didn't want to waste crab meat if the recipe wasn't good. After tasting the chowder, I wish I would have made the full amount! It was DELICIOUS!!!!
I originally thought this recipe was just going to be "OK", but wanted to make it because I had all the ingredients on hand. Boy, was I glad I did! This recipe was awesome. I had to cut it in half because I only had 1 cup of clam broth and cream. I did use imitation crab instead of lump also. To me it was still great. The one thing I would do differently next time is puree the chowder a little to make it less chunky and then add the crab. This one's a keeper. Awesome recipe! Thanks for sharing.
this was great!
This was awesome!!!!!! I added some blanced asparagus at the end and a 1/4 cup of sherry during the cooking process. It is perfect. I am now making this with two cans of clams instead of crab to see what it tastes like. Should be some goood chowda!!!!!!!!! Ill keep ya posted.
This chowder is out of this world incredible! Sooo Delicious.I made this tonight for myself and DD (who is 9). I used 1 chipotle because it was a hot one! I added some of the adobo sauce as well,I used frozen corn.(no fresh here in jersey during january...)Followed the rest as is and oh boy!My daughter said.. Mommy..this is a do again! Absolutely Excellent!
