Test Kitchen Tips:

Purchase a baguette from the bakery, wrap in foil, and warm in the oven while the chowder cooks (5 minutes in the 450 degrees F. oven should do it). Or, make corn muffins using corn muffin mix. Prepare according to the package and bake while the chowder cooks.

Make a quick dessert by topping mango slices with whipped topping and sprinkling with ground allspice.
