Seafood Chowder

I’ve never made seafood chowder before, but had several ingredients on hand that would work with this simple recipe, so I decided to give it a try. It was a success with the family (except Janelle who doesn’t like anything seafood)

Easy Seafood Chowder


4-5 slices bacon
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 can cream-style corn
1 can cream of potato soup
2 cups half and half
1 pkg (8 oz) cream cheese, cubed
1 can crab meat
1 can clams
1/2 pound frozen, cooked shrimp

In dutch oven, cut up bacon into small pieces and fry, with onions and garlic, until bacon is starting to get crisp. Depending on the size of the shrimp you are using, you may want to chop them into small pieces. Add all other ingredients to the pot and heat, without boiling, until cream cheese is melted and shrimp are heated through. Depending on how thick you like your chowder, you can either add more or less half and half.
