Elegant Crab Chowder Recipe


During the holidays itís nice to serve something special, especially when guests are invited. Everyone seems to have major time constraints, however, with shopping, wrapping, and entertaining, so itís not always possible to spend a lot of time in the kitchen. This delicious Quick and Easy Crab Chowder, which contains plenty of lump crabmeat, can be made in less than 30 minutes with the help of the versatile Basic Cream Soup Mix on the pantry shelf.
ĒĒ
For those in a bigger hurry, onions, celery, and peppers can be purchased already chopped in the frozen vegetable section or the produce section of many larger grocery stores. Frozen potato chunks or country style hash browns can be used in place of fresh potatoes.

Donít reserve this fabulous soup just for the soup course when entertaining; it is also hearty and makes a great family dinner on a busy night, especially accompanied by crusty bread and a salad.
