3. On a rimmed baking sheet, toss potatoes with 2 tablespoons olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic. Roast for 30 minutes or until crisp.

4. Meanwhile, in a large flameproof casserole over medium high heat, heat the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil. Add the onion and cook, stirring, for 8 minutes or until just beginning to brown. Add the chorizo, clams, and wine. Bring to a boil, cover the pan, and cook for 5 minutes or until clams open.
