Quick and Easy Crab and Corn Chowder

This is a recipe that I got from my brother recently and not sure where he got it. It is quick and easy to make and simply delicious. If you use the frozen hash brown potatoes and corn thaw them first. I usually use the fresh shredded hash browns from the dairy case. Cooking time specified does not include the cooked bacon.

    Excellent!! I had a pound of fresh Dungeness Crab, so I added it all. Used cubed frozen has browns. Will definitely make this again, if I have the patience to crack and pull the meat out of the crab my husband catches.

    Very tasty chowder, for sure, & although I did follow the recipe for the most part, I crumbled the crisply fried bacon pretty small, used 12 ounces of crabmeat & added a 2nd cup of corn kernels! Definitely a keeper recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed in New Kids on the Block tag]
