Ron's Famous Clam Dip for Purists

Ron's Famous Clam Dip for Purists created by teresas

This is a favorite recipe of my DH's. It's fast and tasty. He makes it frequently for most social gatherings, most often serving with kettle chips. He says it doesn't scale well, so if you'd like to double the batch, make two separate batches, then add them together.

    I, too, was thinking about adding some other ingredients, but after I tasted it as written it needed nothing! Thanks for posting!

    Well now, what a lovely surprise this is. I was prepared to add some red pepper flakes but this didn't need any additions at all. I did save a few clams that I rough chopped and added back into the dip after processing. Served it with an assortment of crackers as a TV movie night munchie and it was gone long before the movie ended with 3 adults enjoying it. I used 95% fat free cream cheese which worked fine, tasted great and really lowered the fat content. :D

    How easy can you get!! This is very tasty for really no ingredients. I was thinking it would need something like garlic or salt or just something else... But there is no need for anything else. I served ours with dip chip and didn't use all the liquid so mine was more on the thick side. Yummy! Thanks for posting. :)

    This recipe made it into our Book #231450. 5/21/08 - Simple and delicious served with saltines! I just put the cream cheese and the entirety of the can of clams into the food processor and wha-la! This is a great dip that is quick to make with minimal ingredients that is perfect for unexpected company. Thanks for posting! :)
