EXCELLENT Chowder!! I have made this twice so far. I did cut the liquid back by about half, maybe a little less. Served at a dinner party for 8 people as a first course & everyone raved.

Wow- I was VERY disappointed with this recipe. First of all, since the vegetables (including the potatoes) were "minced" it really lacked the chunky vegetables usually associated with a chowder. Secondly, there was very little flavor, even though I added additional clam juice, cayenne pepper, and salt & pepper. The broth also seemed to seperate, making a very odd consistency. My husband, who found & was looking forward to the recipe, ordered a pizza.

This is an excellent recipe. Also is an excellent base for fish chowder. Add your own favorite seafoods for variation.

This is an outstanding chowder, better than most restaurants can dream up, for sure! The Sherry adds a touch of class, and it's a breeze to cook up on short notice. I used whole cream and skim milk, as that's what I had on hand, and in the future I intend to add some haddock or cod to add a bit more seafood to the mix. This is a can't miss recipe for those who love a good, rich seafood chowder!

Be prepared to freeze this soup or eat it for a few days. My 13 month old loves it with crackers crumbled in it(seafood picked out,of course). We're a family of three; mommy, daddy, and baby. Just to give you idea of how much it will feed...for a few days!! Very tasty,perfect for cold weather.

I did not find this recipe very good. I had to add chicken boullion to give it some taste. Way too much liquid also. I wont make this again.

This was wonderful. Any fish or seafood will work. Even the kids enjoyed this.
