Mark, a friend from work, submitted this in a work chili cook-off, however he gave it the title White Potato Chili...everyone loved it!!! This dish can also heat in a crockpot...
- 2 (6 1/2 ounce) cans minced clams
- 2 cups potatoes, chopped
- 1 cup onion, chopped
- 1 cup celery, chopped
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons salt
- 1 dash pepper
- 3⁄4 cup butter
- 3⁄4 cup flour
- 1 quart half-and-half
- Put veggies in pot.
- Drain clam juice into veggie pot.
- Add water to cover.
- Boil until tender.
- Make white sauce with remaining ingredients.
- Melt butter.
- Stir in flour, salt, and pepper.
- Cook for 3 or 4 minutes.
- Add half and half, stirring continuously until thick.
- Add clams and veggies to white sauce.
- Heat through.
Way too much flour for my taste. I would prolly sacrifice some of the thickness for less flour. Followed directions to a tee. Kinda bland.
EXCELLENT! I never measure . I started off with way too much potatoes (3 1/2 cups ?) so I used the broth of 4 cans of chopped clams. I did not add water. I used celery salt instead of salt.
I also added old bay seasoning. ( 1 TBSP ?)
The result was very thick so I added a bottle of clam juice
I chose this recipe because the sodium content is way lower than other recipes posted. I thought it might be bland BUT I,m so glad I was wrong
Thanks Laurel for posting Marks recipe for white chili! I hope he won!
So yummy! Even my 8 year old daughter liked it!
