I'm not a big chowder fan, but this was delicious! So easy to make. I skipped the dill since I don't like it, but had some fresh chopped availa ble for my husband, which he used and loved. Will make this again.

Great chowder! I made a few changes because I was missing a few of the ingredients and the recipe was very forgiving. Instead of zucchini I threw in some carrots; I used canned potatoes that I was trying to figure out what to do with and I used dried dill powder. I did, however use half cream and half milk and it was soooo rich and creamy! This was a great way to use up some of the canned salmon my mom gave me.

UM,UM Delicious. This is a VERY, TASTY, EASY to make chowder.I didn't add the red bell pepper personal preference also used red potatoes instead of the yukon gold. I didn't drain the salmon other than that I made the recipe as stated. DH loved the chowder, so did I. Thank you Geema, I will defintely be making this easy recipe again.
