I created this last night and was shockingly good. Enjoy!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large soup pot, warm oil to medium heat. Add Onion and cook for 2-3 minutes. Add Bell pepper and cook for another 2 minutes. Add Garlic and 2 tomatoes, cook for 1-2 additional minutes. Season with salt & pepper.
  2. Add Chipotle Pepper, oregano, chili powder, and cumin (Note my measurements on the spices are estimates, use as much of the flavors as you like).
  3. Add 2 cans of the beans and the chicken stock. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer. Simmer for about 15 minutes uncovered.
  4. Using a hand-held blender, blend all ingredients while cooking in the pot. I like to make it fairly smooth, but some chunks are OK.
  5. Taste for seasoning -- add additional if appropriate for your taste.
  6. Add remaining beans and tomatoes. Simmer for another 10-20 minutes.
  7. Add shrimp and cook for about 5-6 minutes, or until shrimp is pink and cooked through. Remove from heat. Add 1/2 cup fresh cilantro.
  8. Serve in a bowl with remaining cilantro, avocado, scallions, and sour cream if desired.
