While I too like the New England style chowder the best, I do like this as well. It really warms a guy up with that red pepper and spicy v-8 in there. It's grown on me a bit.

Brown 1/4 pound of chopped bacon and reserve about 1 1/2 tablespoons bacon fat
1 large onion, chopped medium
2 celery stalks, chopped medium
1 carrot - fine chop
5-10 cloves garlic, minced
1/8 tsp crushed red pepper

In a 6-8qt. Kettle sauté the above in the bacon fat on medium-low heat until soft- stir so it doesn't burn.

After veggies have softened, add.
5 sprigs chopped fresh parsley
3 chopped green onion tops
3-4 bay leaves
1 -1.25 pound diced potatoes
3-4cups clamato juice and 1 cup spicy V-8 juice
Two 14 ounce cans chopped tomatoes (with liquid)
Bring to boil then simmer until potatoes are soft -about 15 min. or a bit more

After potatoes are soft, add about 1/3 of a large Costco can of clams and juice (or two big cups of chopped fresh razors)
1/2 to 1 tablespoon garlic salt or to taste
Add a bit more Clamato if it seems too thick. Or, if it's not thick enough, remove some of the potatoes, purée them with a hand blender then put them back in.

Top bowls with:
Freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons chopped green onion tops or parsley for garnish

Goes great with BLTs

With the up coming rainy weekend I think I'll have to try this recipe..............

Sounds like some Manhattan Style Chowda with some thick cut bacon BLT's for Sunday supper............

Thanks for posting, sound wonderful..........

I cooked up a batch of this yesterday along with a double batch of Waterbobber's New England style for a birthday get together at my folks place. I haven't had Manhattan style chowder in a long time.......

Well, it was a hit. We will definitely do this one again......

The only changes I made were I upped the bacon to 1/2 pound, upped the clams to a full 54 oz Costco can, and added some clam juice.

Thanks Waterbobber for the recipe, it will be a go to in our house for sure...

Right on....I tweak the recipe a bit here and there and I usually just cut a package of bacon in half So it's more like a half pound. I vary the clams depending on what I got. It's good stuff. Incidentally, I did my New England chowder today with the brick of cream cheese and it was a big hit served up in sourdough bread bowls from Costco. My wife initially said she didn't like the Manhattan style chowder, until I made a batch and she tasted it.....she's warming up to it.

Love it, bro! Pretty soon the warming will transcend to red-hot for your bride.
