Just a few days ago, I saw reports all over the news that 2017 is on-track to being the second hottest year on record—only to be outdone by 2016’s hottest year ever, with 2015 right behind. So whether you’re finding yourself plumped up like a slippery hot dog in the humidity-fueled heat of the deep South, or topping out the thermometer in the hot and arid desert temps of the West, there’s one thing we can all agree on: It’s stinkin’ hot out there.
Heat like this leaves me with little appetite, and when I am hungry, it’s for something light, fresh, and typically topped with avocado, because what on earth isn’t better and more soothing with avocado?
This corn and crab soup is just the ticket. It’s simple but elegant at the same time. It’s healthy, and light in flavor and in calories. And with the addition of two of my favorite flavorings—a sprinkle of chipotle powder and a squeeze of lime—in the words of Emeril, this soup’s flavor is kicked up a notch.
While this recipe’s original intention is to be served chilled, it can certainly be served warm to be enjoyed all year long. I can easily see it being added to any holiday menu or meal-prepped for a week of easy workday lunches. continue to recipe… about Chilled Corn and Crab Soup
