New England Clam Chowder

Ingredients

Prep time: 10 minutes           Cook time: 40 min              Serves 4-6
2 cups whole milk
2 cups heavy cream
1 tsp all purpose flour
3 tsp.  Healthy Solutions Shrimp Scampi spice blend
1 stick unsalted butter
1 medium onion, diced
1 medium potato, diced
2 cans chopped clams, saving the juice from one can

Directions:

Sauté onion on low to medium heat in 1 tbsp. butter until translucent. In a large pot, combine spice blend with onions, potato, cream, milk, and remaining butter. Heat on low, stirring often, for 30-40 minutes or until potatoes are tender.  Stir in clams. Simmer on low heat for approximately 30 minutes.
