I’ve written about my go-to foods before. One I left out is a treasure for winter-weather time. It’s fast & delicious. It’s easy to have on hand. What could be better?! For those of you out there that don’t like clams, you’re missing out. I’ve never had fresh clams in the shell and sometimes clams can be a bit too chewy, but that’s usually from over-heating. I like mine minced up good in a pasta sauce or soup. And with the added benefit of corn and cream, you can’t go wrong. If absolutely necessary, you could substitute a can of chicken for the clams.
Corny Clam Chowder
1 can cream-style corn
1 can cream of potato condensed soup
1 can minced or chopped clams, drained
1 ½ C half & half
In a medium saucepan, mix corn, soup and half & half. Heat through. Add clams and heat through.
Garnish with bacon bits, if desired. (We love it with Tastefully Simple’s Bacon Bacon sprinkled on top!)
Serve with corn muffins for a quick & delicious weeknight meal in under 10 minutes!! (Not counting the time it takes to make the corn muffins, of course.)
Note: I did substitute 2% milk for the half & half recently and it was decent, but not nearly as good as the cream.
