  1. I just cooked this up tonight and added some diced cooked ham that I had left over from Easter…delicious!

  2. I just made this. WIth the liquid to mashed potato ratio as is, it was a little too thick. It still pretty much looked like mashed potatoes. I added one additional cup of half and half and it was perfect! I also made a few changes to turn it into crab and corn chowder if anyone wishes to do that also. I put in less corn and added in some broccoli and imitation crab. I also added some salt and old bay. Instead of cooking green onion w/ the celery I used white onion. I still garnished with green onion. DELISH
