Fixed this last night and it was wonderful. The shrimp were bite size and went so well with the rest of the ingredients. I would imagine that this would also be good with cooked chicken.

Well, it seems I am on a shrimp binge. I did cut the recipe in half, and used less than a 1/4 cup of onions. All I got to say is MMMM-good. It went real well with our shrimp lunch today.

This was delicious! Left out the onions, otherwise made as specified, mixing the soup into the rice before adding the shrimp. I may add more jalapeno next time as I really liked the spice it gave. Served with bread and a ceaser salad, we really enjoyed this dish!

I never really cooked with shrimp much before, or eat it.... but I was up for something diffrent and this recipe fit the bill! I cut the recipe down by half and it worked well. I didnt have ritz so I used salt free saltine crackers left over from a party I just had along with assorted left over cut veggies from a veggie tray, and also low sodium cream soup. With all that said it was great! This recipe may have finally turned me onto shirmp! Thanks for posting!!
