"After searching for a crock pot recipe I had made a while ago, I found it on the Internet! Enjoy! Makes a bunch..."
Serving Size: 1 (272 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 10
"I don't usually like canned soups in a recipe, but this is an excellent exception! Did make change of adding a bottle of clam juice to intensify the clam taste. Will have this again. Thnx for posting, Ang11002."
"This is very good clam chowder, especially considering how easy it is. I replaced the whipping cream with skim evaporated milk, and used fat-free half-and-half. It will definitely be a keeper!"
"We really enjoyed this soup and it couldn't be easier. Following some of the other recommendations I used fat free Half n Half and added potato flakes but next time I will try the trick with the lid to see if that thickens it. I may also add more clams. Thanks for a great recipe!"
"This was a very good basic recipe. I like my chowder a little thicker so ended up adding a second can of clam chowder. First I sauteed a medium chopped onion in a tablespoon of butter and added a couple of tablespoons of dry sherry and cooked down. I then added this to the crockpot. I also added some cod pieces and some bay scallops. The fish cooked a little faster so had to remove them. Next time I'll add later. I also added a couple of teaspoons of freshly ground pepper and half a teaspoon of celery seed. I couldn't taste the celery soup. I did like this and will make it again. Thanks for the recipe Ang.... Lee"
"I also used fat free half and half and tweeked it with some pepper and a bit of garlic. Super easy; super good!!"
"This was very easy. I accidentally added double the clams, and chose not to drain them. Initially the soup was too thin, but I took another reviewer's suggestion to use potato flakes. That worked great. I mixed about 1/2 cup flakes with enough soup liquie to make it smooth. I added that to the soup then sprinkled small amounts over the soup and stirred it in."
"If you want a little more clam taste I added 1/2 small bottle of clam juice and 2 cans of the mini clams. Also, to thicken it to your desired consistency you can add instant mashed potato flakes (just add a little at a time stirring between). That way you don't compromise flavor or thickness!"
"This is very good and so easy. I replaced both creams with skim evaporated milk, and fat-free half-and-half as did previous reviewer. Thanks for a quick clam chowder."
"I didn't make this in the crock pot, because I wanted to have it for lunch. It was really good! I'm a soup lover from way back, and this one will be in my regular rotation. Easy and great!! Thanks Ang!"
"I can't believe I forgot to review this recipe. I made this for my oldest son and he loved it! It tastes wonderful and is soooo easy!"
"I used to make this frequently but always used 4 cans of clams, 2 drained, 2 not and added 5-6 potatoes diced. Also omitted half and half and used 1 quart heavy cream only. Easy and delicious. you can make from scratch, saute onions and celery, add potatoes and leave out canned soups."
"This was excellent!!!!! 10 STARS!!! I noticed a reviewer that commented they liked the chowder a little thicker and you accomplish that by leaving the lid of the crockpot "off" a little to allow the moisture to evaporate. My chowder was PERFECT!! Thick, hot and clammy. I did not change the recipe at all."
