This chip dip is an Adams family favorite and at any Adams Family function or event you are sure to find Clam Chip Dip on the table. So we have surnamed it Adams Dip because it is basically a part of the family. It is really that good!
I have debated several times on whether I should share this recipe. Not because it is a some family secret recipe but because the ingredients kind of make this dip sound nasty. The first time I came into contact with this dip was while my husband and I were dating and I drove up to eat dinner with his family while they were camping and of course, the dip was a side. I have never been a big fan of cottage cheese and that is one of the main ingredients. I swore there was no way I was going to put that into my mouth. Why would anyone put cottage cheese on a potato chip and eat it? But I was young and in love and didn't want to offend my cute boyfriend. So I took a chip and took the smallest amount of dip on my chip and ate it thinking I would have to do the fake smile "that is really good" while I tried to choke it down.
It was AMAZING!
Now I am hooked, so I guess its a good thing that I married that cute boy!
So here is the recipe for this AMAZING Adams Dip.
8 Ounces Cream Cheese
24 Ounces Cottage
Can Minced Clams
In a microwave safe bowl put the entire brick of cream cheese. Microwave for 30 seconds at a time until the cream cheese is soft and spreadable.
Dump all of the other ingredients into the bowl. For the clams you want the entire can, juice and all. I never really measure the Lemon Juice I sprinkle it in, probably no more then a TBS.
With a spatula stir the dip making sure to scrape the sides so everything gets mixed in well.
And that is all there is to it!
I like to eat the dip with the ruffle chips while my husband prefers the non ruffle, so it is really just preference.
If you are brave enough to try this recipe I would love to hear how you liked it. I mean, I know your going to LOVE it, but I want to hear it from you!
And maybe after you try it you will fall in love and get married! Hey, it happened to me!
