This is very good! I used whole milk for extra body and added 1 t minced garlic. It was a very comforting soup on a chilly day. I sprinkled fresh snipped chives on top for color. A good easy recipe! Thanks Caryn I will use this recipe again!

Great onion flavor! I used fat free half and half for the milk. It was nice and creamy and just the right thickness. It's the perfect clam chowder for onion lovers. Thanx!
