This is the recipe of the year. I don't make things twice, but I wish I doubled this recipe at the very least. It was gone in less than a day. I used evaporated milk instead of whipping cream and put a ton of cilantro in the soup because I love it. I also used smaller shrimp instead of cutting up larger shrimp. I found this recipe in Taste of Home Award Winning Recipes 2010. Thank you for posting!!!
Fabulous. I doubled the recipe and subbed 2 cups of chicken stock for 1 cup of water and 2 tsp bouillon granules. I will stick with these changes. The whole family loved it. Fed 2 adults/2 kids with one serving left for lunch the next day.
I tried this recipe because of the rave reviews. There isn't anything wrong with it. It is OK, but I don't think it's as wonderful as everyone else. Maybe it just comes down to preference.
