"Creamy soup with crab, potatoes, and asparagus. I made this on a whim one Sunday when crabmeat was on sale at the store. It comes together quickly and is very tasty! You could easily replace the asparagus with another vegetable with equally good results."
Cook and stir the bacon and onion in a saucepan over medium-high heat until the onion is translucent, 7 to 10 minutes.
Stir the garlic and yellow bell pepper into the bacon mixture; cook and stir together another 2 minutes.
Mix the diced potato, asparagus, crabmeat, skim milk, half-and-half, salt, and black pepper into the bacon mixture; bring to a simmer, reduce heat to medium, and cook until the potatoes are tender, 20 to 30 minutes.
