Manhattan Clam Chowder

Manhattan Clam Chowder

This is an easy chowder soup recipe you can even throw together on a weeknight. 

It’s a tomato-based clam chowder, often referred to as a Manhattan clam chowder. 

I’ve used canned clams because they are easy to find, but by all means, you can you fresh or frozen clams instead.
