Recipe Notes

There is nothing like a warm, hearty chowder to lift your spirits when you are down! I love comfort food that fills your stomach and warms your soul and this chowder fits the bill! It is wonderful poured over biscuits or to dip them in! It is also a wonderful meal to have when you get home from a long day at work in the cold Alabama months! Sometimes I like to add potatoes to it as well.
