Ingredients


2 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil, divided

1 cup vidalia or sweet onion, chopped

3 cans (15.25 oz. each) no salt added corn

1 tsp. no salt sodium-free salt

1/4 tsp. black pepper, ground

2 cups water

1/3 cup fat free half and half

1/3 cup frozen green peas, thawed

1/4 cup small fresh basil leaves, diced

1 lb. jumbo lump crabmeat, drained and shell pieces removed

OPTIONAL

8 Tbsp. jalapeno slices, diced
(We used La Preferida Jalapeno Nacho Slices.)


The sweet corn and savory crab blend together for a delicious soup. If you like things a little on the spicy side, add the jalapeno slices.

1. Heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat. Once it's hot add 1 tablespoon of olive oil and spread it evenly in the pan.

2. Add the onion to the pan and saute for about 3 minutes, until it starts to soften. Then stir in the corn, sodium-free salt and pepper. Saute and stir for another 3 minutes.

3. Pour the 2 cups of water in and bring to a boil. Then reduce heat to low and simmer for 6 more minutes.

4. Pour the corn mixture and half and half into a blender. Then blend until smooth.

5. Place the peas into a small bowl and lightly mash with a fork. Stir in the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil and basil leaves. Pour the corn chowder into a serving bowl and stir in the peas and basil leaves.

6. Scoop 1/2 cup of corn chowder and put it in a serving bowl. Add 2 ounces of crab meat over the top and serve.

7. If you like things a little more spicy, add a tablespoon of jalapeno slices over the top of each serving.

Yield: 8 Servings, about 1/2 cup each
