“An awful lot of hoopla and celebrating goes on in Tampa in February and this chowder/stew is often served. I finaly got this wonderful recipe, after years of asking, from a friend who admitted it was from the Gasperilla Cookbook. Full flavored and hearty and easy to put together. Serve with warm crusty bread or big ole' homemade croutons. Time is estimated. I guess it depends on how fast one dices.”
