    If you want a creamier soup without adding calories, put a portion in the blender. I always do that when making corn or potato soup to get a rich texture without cream. - 9/29/09

    My family and I really enjoyed this recipe. I substituted low fat chicken broth for the water and added a very small amount of lean back bacon to make it a bit more hardy. We all really enjoyed it!! - 8/11/09

    Try adding a little corn meal to thicken. Mix corn meal with a little water before adding to chowder. - 10/15/08

    I would definitely do the chicken broth instead of water because although it was good, it lacked a bit of the salty flavor. - 11/23/07

    I LOVED THIS! I fixed the blandness by using 1/2 - 3/4 tsp. of salt. That's all it needed. Phenomenal!
