    A little too creamy and not quite fishy enough for me, but other than that it was wonderful

    I made this and it was really good. I used corn instead of peppers, because I don't actually like peppers, and used a little bit more clam juice. When I make this again, and I will, I would probably use less cream, both for health reasons and because I thought the creamy flavor was just a tad overwhelming, and add some crumbled bacon.

    Also, I wanted to say that from start to finish (including all chopping) this recipe took a little over 2 hours. I also wanted to point out that potatoes take much more than 10 minutes to cook fully, at least on my stove. It took 25-30 minutes for them to be completely tender.

    ok i am gonna try something tonight and i will let you know how it works...i have been looking for a superthick corn chowder and your base sounded the best so i am giving that a shot, omitting the clams, and juice, wine and vege (except the onion and garlic) and i will add in corn and condenced milk...maybe some bacon as well...lets see how this goes
