Seafood Chowder

Robin Wellhouse


This seafood chowder is the epitome of comfort food. You can use any type of seafood - single variety or a combination. Great for a cool fall or cold winter's day. This is a total potluck pleaser or you can divide it into separate containers and freeze it for a rainy day!
