Clam Dip

Sounds yucky if you're not a fan of shellfish...or allergic, which could pose a problem...if might as well quit while you're ahead. 
My little brother brought this to family Thanksgiving and told me to try it.  He got the recipe from his friend Kasey's grandmother.  I'll admit I was hesitant, but this stuff is stinkin' good!  I almost couldn't stop...well not almost...let's face it, I couldn't stop.  And to top it all off it's SUPER easy!

1 pkg cream cheese
1 can minced clams (save the juice, you'll need that later)
equal parts clam juice and lemon juice (this is where you decide how strong you want the dip to be)
A dollop of mayo
Sprinkle with chopped chives (I think he used green onions, which I prefer)

Mix all ingredients except the green onions in a bowl with a small hand mixer or food processor so there aren't any clam chunks...sorry that just sounds gross...Stir in the green onions at the end if you use a food processor, if not just blend them right in.  Chill and serve with corn chips.  Ps. Frito Scoops are the shiz...


  1. Clams sound...weird...but I will admit that I have never met a dip I didn't LOVE. :) What does it taste like?!

  2. I think it honestly tastes a lot like my mom's cheese ball! Same kind of really doesn't taste fishy..I think that's where the lemon juice helps.

  3. I think my family would like this one too and the thought of your brother making this makes me giggle a little:) I haven't seen you all in years and in my mind you are all still teenagers!
