  • 2 8 oz. cream cheese, Philadelphia Original, at room temperature
  • 4 6.5 oz. cans minced or chopped clams, (like Bumble Bee brand) , drained and the liquid reserved
  • 1 small white onion , grated, 2 or 3 tbsp
  • 3 shakes Worcestershire sauce , approx. 1 tsp or to taste
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt


  • Place cream cheese, onion, worcestershire sauce and salt in a medium sized mixing bowl and beat with a hand mixer.
  • Add reserved clam juice, about 1 tbsp at a time until the dip is smooth and creamy,
  • Add clams and mix until incorporated
  • Serve chilled with potato chips


  1. Reduced fat cream cheese is not recommended. It makes a thin tasting dip.
  2. Consistency: When adding the reserved clam juice to thin, go slowly as it is easy to make the dip too runny.
  3. Calories are based on 2 tablespoons of the clam dip without chips.
