Corn and Crab Chowder

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by JManCanCook

This recipe is great. I won't say where it came from but it's a basically a recipe that has won many chowder contests on the east coast and is served at a popular restaurant. I was also shocked also to learn of the "simple" ingredients it used - not from scratch that most hardcore chowder eaters swear by. This makes a full pot so cut the ingredients in half if you want to make a half pot worth.
