Slow Cooker Shrimp Chowder – A Tasty Wonder Of The Sea!

Shrimp chowder is a favorite at family dinners. First of all, shrimps are a “luxury”; it’s something that we don’t prepare every day. So whenever there’s a shrimp dish, we all indulge ourselves with it. Second, shrimps have this distinct taste that go so well with creamy dishes and everyone just gets addicted.

It’s a highlight of everyone’s night. It’s a full meal that doesn’t fail to satisfy all dinner guests including the kids; and it’s easy to prepare. While I put everything inside the slow cooker and waits for it to do its magic, I can do other things in between, making me finish my other responsibilities without compromising the others.
