Easy Crawfish Bisque

Recipe by Dr.JenLeddy

Very quick and easy recipe that is bouncing with flavor. It sounds like it might not be good with all the processed cans and cheese, but it's wonderful! I first had it as a very hearty soup that will have you going back for seconds. My husband and I often eat it as a sauce over rice or pasta since it's so rich and it makes it last a lot longer. If you can't find Cr of Onion soup use onion soup. My Mom adds 2 cans of sliced potatoes to the mix, I don't.

Made this recipe exactly as written and was very very pleased with how great it turned out. Next time, however, I will change the evaporated milk to the fat free version and find other ways to cut corners to make it more diet friendly.
