Yummy. I made some changes and ended up with wonderful. I added celery and some hot sauce per other reviewer's comments. I sauted the carrot onion & celery. I used chicken broth in place of the water and used unpeeled sliced red potatoes. Finally I added 1 cup V8 low sodium juice and ommited the salt. Read More

I've never made soup before much less manhattan clam chowder. So I took some of the advice of the reviewers and added some things. If I hadn't added anything it would've been extrememly bland. So here's what I did: I replaced the water with chicken broth added another can of clams added about 2.5 fl oz of Worchestire sauce ( I love the zest it gave it) some Old bay seasoning (About 2 tsp.) added celery and 3 cloves of freshly minced garlic. It was to die for and I didn't even have leftovers! You may want to add more or less seasoning and worchestire sauce over the cooking period. I let it cook for about 45 mins and didn't have to mash the vegetables. Read More

This was really BLAND when prepared as directed but was an ok starting point. Added worchestershire sauce a couple of tablespoons of salsa (did not have any hot sauce) a bullion cube a bit of tomato sauce Old Bay Seasoning garlic basil celery and green pepper before I got the desired results. Think that 2 cans of tomatoes would be too much of a good thing and that the chowder should be simmered for at least an hour. Read More

Great recipe. Tried it tonight and had to force myself to stop. I added a third can of clams and two cans of tomatoes. Also I had hot sauce available for those who wanted it. A small amount gave it just the right amount of "zing". Will definitely make this again and again. Read More
