There are sure a lot of clam chowder recipes out there calling for condensed milk!

And might I add that there is always the "that's the way we always have made it" reason as well.

I think that it is just a pantry staple put to tasty use when you have lotsa clams. You don't need to run to the store to by cream or half and half, it is thicker than regular milk with more concentrated "milky" flavor, and will yield a chowder creamy tasting but not super heavy-rich.

That's my best guess!
