I've been checking out some cooking blogs lately and finding some fabulous recipes that I have tried and some that I fully intend to try. When this one was recommended from http://onceuponaplaterecipes.blogspot.com/ I knew it was a must try!
Well, I DID try it, and oh my goodness...was it ever good! My husband couldn't get enough of this! People, I couldn't even get a chance to put the garnishes on top...he loved it just the way it is, but I of course, like all the garnishes....
Here is how mine turned out, and you can compare it to the one in the original post.
Again I beg for leniency...traveling in a Motorhome, I don't always have "everything" on hand like they require...so I make do!" I didn't have Red tomato to chop up on top for color, nor did I have the Lime so I improvised for this picture and threw lemons on there (just for presentation.) But, I did have the fresh avacado and Cilantro! Hopefully I get some points for that? Regardless? I Recommend you make this chowder....
