Expert Tips

Any frozen vegetables you may have in your freezer, such as corn, broccoli cuts or green beans, can be used in place of the frozen mixed vegetables.

Heat the clam chowder carefully; clams toughen and lose flavor when cooked on high heat for extended times. Keep these ingredients on hand for a spur-of-the-moment meal at lunch or dinnertime.
