"While vacationing in the New England states, we enjoyed a delicious clam chowder," recalls Rosann McWherter of Dublin, California. "When I go home, I wanted to savor the same flavor in the least amount of time. That's how this shortcut was born."

  • 1-1/3 cups milk
  • 1 can (6-1/2 ounces) chopped clams, drained
  • 2 tablespoons sherry or chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • Shredded cheddar cheese, optional


  1. In a large saucepan, combine the first five ingredients. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 5 minutes. Sprinkle with cheese if desired.
