Hot days call for cool foods, like this refreshing soup. Both filling and flavorful, it uses the best of summer’s bounty. Seasonings can be adjusted to your tastes.Mary Marlowe Leverette, Columbia, South Carolina
"As a school principal, wife and mom, I cook to wind down at the end of a busy day," comments Amy Lingren of Des Peres, Missouri. "This recipe, rich with cheese and crab, is a quick and different way to dress up canned soup."
I started cooking at a local restaurant when I was 16 years old. This creamy chowder was one of the soups we made. The recipe had been passed from cook to cook but had never been written down, until now!
In Gretna, Louisiana, Will Zunino simmers this rich and creamy creation in his slow cooker. Because the chowder is ready in less than four hours, it can be prepared in the afternoon and served to dinner guests that night.
