Seafood Chowder

Recipe by Z-chef

A tomato-based chowder which is a meal in a bowl. Great for cold winter evenings, and special enough for company.

Ohhhh how I love soups and chowders and this included. I cut the recipe down and I didn't use mussels (DD doesn't like them) and I used a seafood mix with some cod. Ohhhh heaven. This is going into my Favorites of 2011. Thank you for submitting. Made for Spring PAC 2011.
