Crockpot Crab and Corn Chowder Recipe

Crockpot Crab and Corn Chowder Recipe

I get a lot of magazines. The one magazine that I love is Family Circle. I got this super Crockpot Crab and Corn Chowder recipe that I wanted to share with you.

Here is what I would change. I would use frozen corn. It was difficult to get the corn off the cob when the kids were starving. Our son can’t eat seafood so I took some out of the crockpot for him and his sister before I added the crab. The other thing I would change is I would hide the leftovers from my husband. This soup was yummy!!!!  I hope you enjoy. It cost about $16 but it made two complete meals and a lunch. I could have made it cheaper but I bought the larger can of crab (located in the fresh fish section of your grocery store) instead of the amount the recipe called for.
