Ralph and Kacoo's Crawfish and Corn Soup



  1. Heat bacon fat and mix in the flour to make a roux. Cook roux to a light brown peanut butter color. (Stir constantly so that the roux will not burn.)
  2. Add the onions and garlic and smother in the roux. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes.
  3. Add the crawfish and both corns and cook for 3 minutes.
  4. Add the whipping cream and Ro*Tel tomatoes and simmer over medium heat until soup starts to thicken.
  5. Add salt and peppers if desired.

A raw baking potato can be diced and sauteed with the onions to give flavor and also help thicken the soup.
