1 cup heavy cream
some milk
salt and pepper
2 to 3 cans crab meat

Melt the butter then add all the veggies with some salt and pepper. Cook until the veggies are tender then add the flour. Keep stirring till the flour gets a little color. Add the cream and same amount of milk, all the soups, and cheese, salt and pepper again (not the crab meat).
Stir lots as not to burn the bottom, when it comes to a boil lower heat. Now adjust the thickness by adding more milk. When it gets to the rite thickness add the crab meat (you can use real crab meat but it dont add a lot to the bisque).
