This chowder recipe is a bit more economical than most.  Using a prepared marinara mix, instead of other individual and more expensive fish, cuts the cost and also the time preparing it.  Personally I’m not sure about adding cheese, could be worth trying, but I don’t see why you couldn’t leave it out either.


The sky outside is dark and menacing, so what better time to think of making soup.  This recipe was published by Woman’s Day in 1991 before chorizo sausage was so readily available.  I think substituting it for the frankfurts would give the soup a lot more flavour and I’d also use fresh potato instead of the tinned Tiny Taters, if you can be bothered peeling and cutting them.  A nice and hearty boost on a cold winter’s day.
