    Lorac's Note:

    I never thought I would be tempted by a "quick fix" clam chowder recipe, but Hidden Valleys Ranch Dressing version is headed for my Zaar cookbook!

      I made this for my husband last night. It took only minutes to prepare and cook. Husband is a seafood lover from new york. He absolutely loved this and he is a die hard chowder critic. I did use chardonnay wine, and added a little more potatoe. Excellent recipe. Now I'm looking for a simple seafood stew (cioppino) recipe. Any suggestions?

      The tang of the ranch dressing was surprisingly good!

      I simplified this a teensy bit more using a can of Campbell's Chunky New England Clam Chowder. I didn't have dried ranch dip mix, so used 2 Tbl. prepared ranch salad dressing and it worked perfectly! I prefer my "soup" kinda thick, so ionly added 2 Tbl. each of the half and half and the dry white wine. Forgot to add the worcestershire, but it was really, really good!! Thanks so much!! Hope you get well soon!!
