I serve this cheesy chowder every Christmas or New Year's. Throughout the year, I substitute the potatoes and clams with broccoli and find that even the grandchildren enjoy the taste. —Joy Schuster Glentana, Montana

I discovered this recipe last year & we loved it we make it as often as we can now.

Too much pepper. Perhaps needs little to none. I think I would go for a more traditional recipe for clam chowder the next time.

I have made this recipe 5 times since I found it in the Taste of Home Annual. Incredible. I've made it for my Mother and she loves it. The only thing I do different, is use 4 cans of clams. Great recipe. Thanks
