"I first tried something similar to this in San Antonio and could never find a recipe that really recaptured what I had there. I experimented and finally came up with this. Anyone who has tried it has begged for the recipe. Try it with tortilla chips!"

Wonderful! I substituted ketchup and tomato clam juice for SPICY V8 juice and straight clam juice. I also added a TON of finely chopped fresh celery and double the avacato (adding it right at ...
