Loads of fresh crabmeat dress up this convenience-style soup.
Process first 3 ingredients in a blender until smooth, stopping to scrape down sides as needed. Transfer cream cheese mixture to a Dutch oven. Stir in half-and-half and remaining ingredients.
Cover and bring to a boil; reduce heat to medium, and cook 10 minutes, stirring often.
