Deb's Clam Chowder

The days are getting colder and I was in the mood for some cozy food!  This soup seemed to fit the bill!  So yummy and easy! xo
    4 tablespoons butter
    1 large onion, chopped
    5 ribs of celery, sliced thinly
    1 c Real Bacon Bits, (Kirkland Brand)
    ¼ c flour
    3 1/2 cups milk
    a 10-ounce can whole baby clams including the liquid or two 6 1/2-ounce cans minced clams including the liquid
    2 pounds red potatoes, diced
    3 T Sriracha hot sauce
    2 t garlic salt
    2 t ground black pepper
    1/2 cup scallions sliced diagonally
    In a stock pot over medium high heat, melt butter with onion, celery and bacon bits until onions are transparent. Add flour and stir in until flour is browning on the bottom of the pot. Add milk and potatoes, stir until mixture begins to thicken and the potatoes soften. Add clams and liquid, sirracha, garlic salt, pepper and scallions. Taste for seasoning and serve.
    Enjoy!
