INGREDIENTES for Baja California Style Clam Chowder
- 4 kilos small clams
- 1 kilo tomatoes

When washing the clams, squeeze to open, especially for shells that have sand. Roast the tomatoes, remove the skin and finely chop remaining flesh with onion, garlic and poblano pepper (which should have been previously charred over fire and cleaned). Melt the butter and fry all chopped ingredients until well seasoned. Add the salt, pepper and oregano powder; add clams and cover. Cook on low heat for 25 – 30 minutes. Serve with bread.
