I got the base recipe from Cooking Light Annual Recipes 2006 and modified it to my taste. Unfortunately, after I was done, the recipe is no longer "light" as I am not using reduced fat dairy products (feel free to use 1% milk and fat-free evaporated milk to make the recipe light again). I added more vegetables and seafood to make this one of the best chowders I have ever made. I hope you love it as much as my friends and I have.
