More details explanation on chowder at wikipedia.
What makes a chowder a chowder, and not just a soup? Chowders originally contained some seafood, but today the definition seems broader. A chowder can be any thick, rich soup with chunks of ingredients in it. Potatoes, onions, milk or cream, flour (as a roux to thicken) and clams are common ingredients, but not mandatory. Corn chowders are almost as popular as clam chowders.
Anyone can make a chowder, and unlike meat stews or chiles, chowders don't simmer for great lengths of time on the stove (although it does take time to make a fresh stock, or you can use bottled clam juice ). These thick, hearty soups are filling enough to serve in small mugs, accompanied by oyster crackers or crusty bread, a simple green salad.
So, by now, I hope you're cheering for chowders. Below is a super chowder-bowl recipes while you enjoy your favorite TV shows.
