This is an okay, average tasting soup that on its face might be worthy of three stars. However, when you consider the effort involved (I not only roasted the peppers but made my own chicken broth as well) and the expense (crab meat is not cheap, particularly the jumbo lump crab I used) hubs and I both agree this is a mediocre soup, boring, bland and uninspired. Sherry might have been a nice addition, as well as maybe starting this off by sauteeing the "holy trinity" of carrots, onions and celery. Fish stock or clam juice could be used as well, and would have complemented the crab. It definitely needs more depth and rounded out flavors. As is, it basically tasted no more than what it was - pureed roasted peppers and half and half with some crab meat thrown in at the end.
