Clam Chowder

I decided to make clam chowder today for lunch.  The cold, dreary weather outside just called for something hot and tasty for lunch.  Normally, I put all the ingredients in the crockpot and let it simmer all day on low for a nice supper dish.  Today, I just made it on the stove.


1 1/2 c Dehydrated potato soup mix  (any mix will work)
1 Can cream corn
1/2 tbs hot sauce (optional or to taste)
1/8 tsp crushed red pepper (optional or to taste)
1 can of diced clams (Do not drain)
5 cups water

In a large sauce pan, add the above ingredients and stir well.  Cook over medium heat for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Turn down heat to simmer for an additional 20 minutes.

Everything added to the pot and ready to cook!
Chowder is ready and served with a crescent roll.
 Quick, easy, and delicious!
