½ lb. bacon
1 can of crab (slightly bigger than a tuna can- maybe 6 oz?)
½ onion, chopped
Potatoes, cooked and chopped (I used one can of potatoes, cause that’s what I had. So, if you use fresh, maybe 1-2 medium to large potatoes?)
A few dashes of cayenne pepper, or other powdered red pepper (or chop up some fresh if you have it)
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can cream of celery soup
2 cans of milk
1 can corn, drained
Good pinch of thyme
Cook up bacon in large soup pan. Near the end, add the crab (I had the pan at an angle at this point to avoid saturating the crab in bacon grease, but that was pointless, since it all ends up in the same place).
Remove bacon and crab, leaving grease in pan. Place mixture on paper towel.
Add onion to grease, and cook until onion is tender (add red pepper here if you use fresh, to allow it time to cook). Add potatoes and red pepper. Stir and let simmer for a couple minutes.
Mix in soups, milk, corn and thyme.
Add salt and pepper to taste.
Add back in the bacon/crab mixture.
Let soup warm through, and enjoy.
