Our Family Favorite Seafood Chowder

You'll love this healthy, creamy seafood chowder. It's sooooo good! Go ahead, make a double batch and fill the freezer.

When I was a kid I did not like the taste of seafood! Crazy, right? My Mom would make amazing seafood chowder on Christmas Eve and I would request to have macaroni and cheese instead. Well, I finally outgrew that phase! Once I decided that I actually liked seafood, her seafood chowder quickly became a favorite. But, we only had it once a year on Christmas Eve. 

Now that I am all grown-up, I can make it every day if I want!!! #winning. I have my Mom’s secret seafood chowder recipe and I want to share it with you because it is gooooood! Go ahead, make a double batch, and fill the freezer. I’ve definitely done that! This year I even used my shiny new Instant Pot to make the process even shorter. Seriously, go get one of these amazing machines right now!

    2. Then add the celery and onions over medium-high heat.

    5. Pour it all into a large stockpot.
    6. Add in heavy cream, cream cheese, and clams with juice and spices.
