Easy Clam Chowder

Francine ---


One of Philip's friend did work at a seafood restaurant in Virginia Beach and their clam chowder is one of their signatures...
What is hard to believe is that everybody that goes to this restaurant thinks that their chowder is homemade....well kinda...
I just could not believe it myself when I did eat it...Never I would had dare to think it was this recipe. .Oh! well!!
Quick, easy and taste absolutely wonderful like from scratch.
I made it several times. At times I like to make a change and I add a can of yellow corn.
