This is a wondeful chowder! I made this last night and DH has polished off the whole thing! Very easy to make and very tasty. I had to use canned tomatoes as my tomato crop this year is nill! I also added a bit of fresh corn and some broccoli. This is so worth making - very filling, simple to put together and soooooo tasty. I also added a bit more spice - pepper and salt. Thank-you for posting this delicious chowder!
