Clam Chowder

Clam Chowder

"'I make this chowder for our annual Souper Bowl luncheon at work, and everybody loves it!' comments Chris Sheetz of Olmsted Falls, Ohio. 'I've slimmed it down by using both reduced-fat margarine and mushroom soup.' Tender chunks of red potatoes add color and texture to her thick chowder."

So simple it is hard to believe how tasty it is. I did not change anything in the recipe and it was great.

Great base recipe! I halved the recipe. Used butter instead of margarine. Did not have clam juice so drained juice from 2 cans of clam. Used white wine but also added 1/4 tsp chicken base, and u...
