Crab & Corn Soup

april, 2013 003

I know that this is a soup recipe and most of the country is in the midst of spring, but we in northern Wisconsin are still in winter mode and it is depressing to say the least! The winter just won’t go away so I find myself still making soup to warm our insides. That being said, this is a fantastic recipe out of the latest Louisiana Cookin’ Magazine. I adapted to our own likings and we loved it, so I hope that you will as well…


Crab & Corn Soup


1/3 cup butter
3 tablespoons flour
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup chopped green onions
2 tablespoons chopped jalapenos
3 cups half-and-half (I used the fat free kind and it worked out great)
1 cup chicken broth
1 (15 ounce) can cream style corn
2 (15.25 ounce) cans corn kernels
1 (10.75 ounce) can cream of chicken soup
1 teaspoon Creole seasoning
Salt & pepper to taste
1 (8 ounce) container lump crab meat


In a large saucepan, melt butter over medium heat; stir in flour and cook stirring constantly until thickened and slightly darkened in color, about 5 minutes.

Add onions and jalapeno. Cook until tender, about 10 minutes. Add half-and-half, broth, all corn, soup. Creole seasoning and salt and pepper, stirring to combine. Cook for about 20 minutes.

Add half of the crab meat to soup; cook 10 minutes. Stir in remaining crab meat before serving and garnish with green onions and Creole seasoning.

    I love making corn soup in the summer…when the fresh corn is at it’s peak! And adding crab makes it even more delectable! Thanks, Anne!

    Dear Annie, It is still pretty cold here too!! It seems to be foggy and chilly with mist in the air almost everyday.
    I don’t know where spring is hiding?!
    I am sure though it will arrive soon.

    This soup looks like it would certainly warm your insides and be tasty and delicious.
    Hope all is well. blessings dearest. Catherine xo
