What makes this Corn and Crab Soup so easy?
Three cans of condensed soup (2 potato and 1 mushroom). But you will never guess there’s canned soup in it. It completely tastes homemade.
The soup along with 8 ounces of cream cheese gets blended in a blender so that the soup is ultra creamy and smooth. Then this mixture is combined with half-and-half, Old Bay seasoning, and canned corn in a Dutch oven. It just needs to simmer for 10 minutes and then the crab is added. Just a few more minutes and this chowder is ready to dish up.
Easy Corn and Crab Chowder can be on the table in under 20 minutes. There’s a full pound of lump crab meat added for lots of seafood flavor.
Leftovers will keep in the refrigerator for 3 days.

I recommend using lump crabmeat, but you can use special crab or claw crab to save money.
