The Perfect Clam Chowder

Who doesn't like a steaming bowl of soup on a cold winter day? In my opinion, it's the fastest way to beat a chill, or an oncoming case of the sniffles for that matter. I just made this fab potato clam chowder soup and it was creamy, hearty and everything you'd ever want in a bowl. Plus, it was quick to make and the family literally loved every bite. Serve with some nice French bread, and you've got a great meal.

4 cups hot water

1 box (4.7 oz) Betty Crocker® au gratin potatoes

1/2 teaspoon salt, if desired

1 cup Green Giant® Valley Fresh SteamersTM Niblets® frozen corn

1 cup Green Giant® SELECT® frozen broccoli florets

3 cups milk

1 small onion, chopped (1/4 cup)

2  cans (6 1/2 ounces each) minced clams, undrained

 

  1. Heat water, Potatoes and salt to boiling in 3-quart saucepan. Boil 20 minutes; drain.
  2. Stir in Sauce Mix and remaining ingredients. Heat to boiling over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally.
  3. Reduce heat; simmer uncovered about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until potatoes are tender.

Moms, what are your favorite wintertime soups?

this sounds yummy, but my hubby won't touch broccoli. My favorite is shrimp and corn chowder.
