Ranch Clam Chowder

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Lorac

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?
