Updated on October 16, 2012
5 stars from 1 rating of clam chowder

Here is quick chowder that I have been making for years. It is such a good recipe and so easy to make. I like to serve it with fresh bread and a salad; it is a wonderful meal for a cold evening, and is perfect to feed a large group of people. This clam chowder has always been a hit with my family, and I'm sure it will be with yours also.

My family enjoys this on the first cold Friday of the year as a family tradition. It is one of the things we look forward to every year. I hope that this wonderful soup makes it on your table year after year. ENJOY
