Diane, try this for a base...for a pot THAT big...and that's a big pot:) add 4/ 8oz blocks of cream cheese and 4/16oz containers of sour cream and a stick of butter. I add potatoes to this mixture. I either cube up 2lbs red potatoes boiled with their skins on, add them with a couple cups of the water they were boiled in, or I just add a couple bags of frozen shredded hash browns to the mixture. The bags I buy are like 20oz for $1.59 at Trader Joe's and you don't need to add water to them as they already contain water which comes out during the cooking process. I do sweat my onions and celery in the butter and then add it to the cream cheese/sour cream mixture. You don't need to add flour...which can become nasty if you don't do your roux JUST right with the butter, flour, onion and celery, nor do you have to add half and half, cream, or milk because this recipe is plenty creamy on it's own. I do add Snow's Clam Juice, dry white wine, or cooking sherry at the end as well as parsley, but everything in between is good to go. You can just have clam chowder, with canned clams, sea food chowder with whatever you can get your hands on. I'm landlocked in Colorado, but I usually can get live mussels, sometimes live little neck clams, and there's always frozen crab and shrimp, I've even added the salmon and trout my husband has smoked to this recipe. It's totally a no fail recipe. If you had 2 lbs of crab meat, 2 large cans of clams and their juices, say 2, OR 3lbs of medium shrimp and then the extras of mussels and live clams you could easily feed 25 with some nice crusty french bread...and butter...let's not forget about the good stuff:) I'm a native from Maine transplanted into Colorado and, boy, howdy do I know my chowders! Try this though.

I am not an historian BUT I think I read somewhere that President Washington's favorite meal was She Crab with a Drake Mallard..
