Man alive, yesterday was a crazy day, so I didn't have a chance to review the chowder. I really liked it, John said it was okay. But he's not a big soup/chowder guy unless it's clam chowder in a bread bowl. I added a little bit of Tony Chachere's seasoning to my bowl to spice it up a bit. I think probably with more pepper and onion powder it would have been fine. I'll definitely make it again; it was really easy to throw together, then the cheese on top when it melted in made it extra good!
