Simple Easy Chesapeake Bay Rosy Crab Soup from the Farm

Simple Easy Chesapeake Bay Rosy Crab Soup from the Farm created by Jonathan Melendez

Being from Maryland, I know very well homemade crab soup. This is not that recipe. This is a very quick crab and tomato soup recipe that is used to finish extra crab meat off. Being a base recipe, please use this to be creative with, adding or subtracting ingredients and adjusting seasonings for you and your families enjoyment. I haven't used canned crab in this recipe, but feel free to try it!
