This is one of my favorite Dips. Accompanied with Frito Scoops, the combination is a seafarer's delight. My sister, Kathie, made ordinary clam dip special with her verision and brought this to all our family get togethers. All I can say is... Y U M !

How to Make Kathie's Clam Dip


  1. MIX all ingredients well and spoon into dip bowl.
  2. COVER with plastic wrap and CHILL for at least 1 hour
  3. SERVE with chips or crackers. My favorites are with either Frito Lay Scoops or Triscuits.

    My family loves this dip. I think yours will too. Depending on the size of crowd, this recipe can be doubled, tripled or however much you want to make.
  4. NOTE:
    I've made this with fresh minced onion or dried minced onion. I prefer the real onion, but the dried is much faster to measure with less tears!
