Super easy and yummy! For years I have been trying to find a good recipe for a creamy chowder and this is it! I used 1 1/2 cups of FF Half and half to replace some of the milk. Have made with shrimp and also with crab. (I think I prefer the shrimp.) Added 1 cup of frozen corn as well. Will make often this winter. Thanks!

Hi LMillerRN, this Shrimp Chowder is scrumptious! We have also made it with chicken but there is nothing like the shrimp! We also added sliced green onions & a pinch of crushed red pepper flakes (instead of ground cayenne - personal preference)was really warming and filling! Thank you for posting such a great recipe that should be tried by all. Take care, Diane :=)
