My Uncle Frank makes the best cream of crab soup! He luckily gave me the recipe... it's wonderful!

I made this soup for dinner tonight and it was delicious!! This recipe is rich and flavorful, and it is very easy to prepare. The only change I made was to add the crab meat during the last five minutes of the cooking time-- that way the crab meat pieces don't flake apart. Thanks, Uncle Frank and Chalsea!
