Crab Corn Chowdah



I found two similar crockpot recipes recently but of course I didn't decide to make this until last night.  Not in my crockpot.  So this is my adaptation.  And it was gooooood!

CRAB CORN CHOWDAH

Ingredients:
* EVOO
* 1 medium onion, chopped
* 1 carrot, chopped (because that is what I had on hand)
* 1 teaspoon minced garlic
* 2-3 boxes of your favorite chicken broth
* 1 bag of frozen corn
* 1 can lump crab meat
* 1 can pink crab meat (bc again this is what I had in the house)
* 2 tablespoons cornstarch
* 1-2 cups half and half/cream/milk product of choice
* S and P to taste (I only needed to add pepper)
* Old Bay Seasoning to taste (I use it generously)
* avocado, sliced (optional)

Directions:
* Saute onion and carrot in a little EVOO.  I use my cast iron pot so I need only an tiny bit.  Cover and let veggies sweat until onion is translucent.
* Add garlic.
* Add chicken broth, corn and cans of crab, including any liquid in cans.
* Let simmer for a good long while.  I walked the dog and then went to vote.  So about an hour.  But a half hour min as the corn is frozen.
* Mix about a half cup of milk product with cornstarch until well blended and lump free.  Add this to the pot and add the remaining cream too.
* Add salt and pepper to taste.  You might not need any salt.  I didn't.  Add Old Bay to taste.  Use lots.  It's fabulous.
* Serve hot with a yummy salad.  Top with avocado if desired.  I forgot about the avocado but will use it tonight.

That looks sooooo yummy. We don't have crab chowder soup here in South Africa. It was one of the things that I ordered to taste on one of my first visits to the US. Loved it. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Will see if I can find similar ingredients to try it out.
