I wonder if you could use imitation crab?? Crab is so expensive.

This chowder is beautiful! I'm making it tonight even though it's 90 degrees here. I'll be cutting back on the jalapeno and using a mix of green bell to tone it down for some 'lightweights' in my house!

I just made this and it is REALLY good. I used all jalapeno for the peppers as he did because I like heat. Great on a chilly rainy night!
