Carlos and Bea both loved this. Pretty quick to make, too. Do NOT use chewy bacon, though. Either fry it very crisp, or just use the bacon fat for flavor.
Per my friend Patty Mejia on her cooking blog: “This recipe is courtesy of All Recipes, one of my favorite hang-outs on the web. My hubby is from the East Coast and he misses real seafood. Me, I grew up in Kansas and didn't really eat any type of seafood until I met him. He'd been asking about clam chowder and I knew I had this recipe in one of my homemade recipe books, so I grabbed it and made New England Clam Chowder. Just for him. Oh, I looked for the recipe on All Recipes but couldn't find it. So, I looked for Carnation New England Clam Chowder and found it.”
