This is by far the easiest “semi-homemade” chowder recipe I’ve ever made. You will be amazed at the rave reviews for this soup! No one will be able to tell how simple this was to prepare. Serve warm with hot sauce and chowder crackers.
1-11 oz. Pkg. Dried Creamy Potato Soup Mix (Bear Creek)
1-51 oz. Can Chopped Sea Clams (SeaWatch)
Step 1 – Assemble the Ingredients:
The dried potato soup mix requires 8 cups of water per package instructions. Before adding any water, measure out the liquid from the sea clams, which will take the place of the water in the recipe. If the liquid does not add up to 8 cups, then supplement with additional water (or bottled clam juice) to equal the required 8 cups of liquid.
Step 2 – Measure the Clam Juice and Supplement with Water as Needed:
Step 3 – Add the Potato Mix and Cook per Package Instructions:
Heat the liquid mixture to boiling, then whisk in the dried potato soup mix.
Lower the heat to a simmer and cook for approx. 15 minutes, until the potatoes are tender.
Step 4 – Add the Sea Clams:
Add the sea clams to the soup and heat through before serving.
Step 5 – Serve Individual Portions and Garnish with Hot Sauce and Chowder Crackers:
Step 6 – Enjoy!
