  • 1 pound Alaskan snow crab meat, cooked and shredded
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 can (14.5 ounces) diced tomatoes
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 can (15 ounces) black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup frozen corn kernels
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 4 corn tortillas, cut into strips
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • Sour cream, for serving


  1. In a large pot, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic, and sauté until the onion is translucent and the garlic is fragrant.
  2. Add the cumin, chili powder, oregano, and smoked paprika, and stir until the spices are fragrant.
  3. Add the diced tomatoes and chicken broth, and bring the mixture to a boil.
  4. Add the black beans, corn, red bell pepper, and Alaskan snow crab meat, and reduce the heat to low. Simmer for 15-20 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender.
  5. Stir in the lime juice, and season the soup with salt and pepper to taste.
  6. While the soup is simmering, prepare the tortilla strips by heating a small amount of oil in a frying pan. Add the tortilla strips, and fry until golden and crispy.
  7. Serve the soup hot, topped with the fried tortilla strips, diced avocado, chopped cilantro, and a dollop of sour cream.


Q: Can I use other types of crab meat instead of Alaskan snow crab?

A: Yes, you can use other types of crab meat, such as king crab or Dungeness crab, but the flavor may be slightly different.

Q: Can I make this soup ahead of time?
