tuna chowder! Another recipe that doesn't sound quite as bad as it looks, if you like a fishy soup.
2 cans solid-pack tuna, in oil
4 medium onions, sliced
5 medium potatoes, sliced and pared
3 1/2 tsp. salt (I don't think I've ever seen this much salt before in a family-size recipe. I'd put in < 1 tsp.)
1/8 tsp. pepper
3 cups water
1 qt. milk
1 pkg. frozen corn, thawed
2 Tbs. butter or margarine
Drain oil from tuna into Dutch oven or large kettle. Saute onions in oil until golden, stirring often. Add potatoes, salt, pepper, water; cover; cook 15 min., or until tender. Add milk, corn, and tuna broken in large pieces. Heat. Float butter, dill, on top.
