This recipe was given to me by a bachelor who enjoys cooking, and making large quantities when he does.. It freezes well, and he makes up many individual servings for himself. I was never very fussy about clam chowder, but have to admit, I love the flavor of this one. I think the spicey clamato juice is the key to awesome flavor.
