My friend Donna gave me the chowder recipe via facebook via thepioneerwoman. Donna added potatoes to her chowder...I would have but we had none in the house. I halved the recipe and it was enough for two meals for The Hubs and I (with salad and bread).
It had just enough kick, but I like a little spice. If you don't, leave out the chipotle. (Oh, I didn't halve the bacon because I really like bacon!)
