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!
