Best Clam Chowder Ever

This recipe is not for those watching their fat intake or cholestrol but is so good, a little once in a while should be okay. When I make this, everyone says I should sell it! LOL Better to see someone just enjoy it.

4 can of clams with juice
4 stalks celery, diced
1 onion, diced
3 cups corn, off the cob or canned, not frozen
2 med potatoes, diced
1/2 cp margarine
1/2 cup flour
8 bacon slices
1 qrt half and half
2 TBSP Mrs Dash original
1/2 tsp chili pepper
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper

Fry bacon and remove to drain on paper towels. Use drippings to fry celery, onion and potatoes. Saute until barely tender. Drain. Use same pan and melt butter. Place veggies and complete cans of clams in dutch oven or big pot. Add the corn. Slowly add flour to the melted butter and stir to make a roux. Add this to the pot and stir. Heat the soup to just about boiling for 20 minutes then remove some stock. Add it to the half and half to warm it up. Slowly and I mean slowly, add the half and half mixture to the soup and stir. Add spices and stir. Heat on low/med (do not boil) for 10 minutes. Serve and add crumbled bacon on top.

Rich and creamy and only a salad is necessary to complete this meal. Very fast recipe too.
