Easy Potato Clam Chowder

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)
Hot Sauce
Chowder Crackers

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:
