  1. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Saute onion and bell pepper in hot oil until tender, about 5 minutes; add garlic and continue to saute until garlic is fragrant, about 1 minute. Transfer mixture to a large stockpot.
  2. Stir tomatoes, chicken broth, white wine, tomato paste, parsley, basil, oregano, red pepper flakes, and black pepper with the onion mixture in the stockpot; bring to a boil, cover the pot, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer until the tomatoes are softened, about 15 minutes.
  3. Stir shrimp and cod chunks into the tomato mixture. Arrange clams and mussels in the liquid so they are partially submerged. Cover pot again and continue cooking until the clams and mussels open, 7 to 10 minutes.

It tasted so awesome; just as I remember

This soup/stew turned out wonderful! I did use bay scallops and crab meat instead of clams and mussels because I don’t like those. But I didn’t change anything else and I wouldn’t again, except ...

the best cioppino I've ever made. I made this for 2, so I cut the recipe in half and used clam juice instead of chicken stock, but I did use a little chicken stock just to give it a little silki...

DELICIOUS! I used 2 bottles of clam juice instead of the chicken broth and added in a few anchovy fillets with the onion and garlic, then proceeded with the recipe with no additional tweaks.
