This makes a big pot of thick seafood chowder, you almost need a fork to eat it! You can find crab and shrimp combo in the refrigerator section near the seafood - you could sub 1 can crab meat and 1 can baby shrimp if you can't locate the crab/shrimp combo.

Delicious, easy, hearty, and pretty quick! I used canned crab and shrimp (drained both). I plan to keep these ingredients around as a backup or emergency meal when other plans don't work out. The 1/8 tsp. of cayenne and 1/4 tsp black pepper was perfect for me, but hubs added a little more black pepper. Thanks for posting.

This was delightful and very easy. I could not find the crab/shrimp combo, so I had to use a can each of the crab and shrimp. I also sauteed the onion in some canola oil first (rather than use the spray - I guess I should be more calorie-conscious). I did not find this chowder too thin, but I could easily use a spoon! I will be making this again. Made for Please Review My Recipe Tag Game.

This has a very nice taste, but I found it to be a little too thin for a chowder. I did use a mix of fresh shrimp and fresh crab....maybe that had something to do with the texture. It is a very good tasting soup though! Made for 123 Hit Wonders Tag!
