Clam Dip

I'm finally back! I have been super swamped the last few months but hopefully I'll be able to be a little more consistent now. Anyhow, this recipe is one that my mom would always make for parties when I was young. It's ridiculously easy so it's a great go-to appetizer that you could just throw together anytime. I was randomly craving it today so I whipped some up in about 10 minutes. It's good stuff.

Clam Dip
2 boxes (8 oz. each) cream cheese
2 cans (6.5 oz. each) chopped clams, drain & reserve juice*
1 t. onion powder
1/2 t. garlic powder
black pepper

Combine all ingredients except clam juice. Mix well. Add enough clam juice (about 2-3 T.) to reach a nice, creamy consistency. Serve with potato chips.
*Minced clams work too, but I like the bigger chunks of clams.
