Jacy’s Hot & Spicy Shrimp Soup

Here is my “Hot & Spicy Shrimp” version of the Amazing Soup Diet Recipe.   I have created many different versions of this recipe.  This version:  The orginal recipe exchanging the veggies to:  Shrimp, Broccoli, Cauliflower, Corn (or Hominy), chopped Jalapeno peppers, extra white and black pepper, cumin, pinch of sugar.  It’s delish and definitely “beyond the yum”!  I topped it off with low-cal Corn Muffins.  Bon Appetit!

YUMMM! Loaded Baked Potato Soup

It’s snowing outside and I am up to the challenge of another new soup recipe.  I have my fav you know, that delish German Potato Soup posted earlier but the raves for this one challenged me to try it today.  Here’s the recipe from Disney Parks Blog:

Loaded Baked Potato Soup
Carnation Cafe

Serves 6

1 pound bacon, roughly chopped
1 medium yellow onion, diced
1 large carrot, peeled and diced
3/4 cup diced celery
4 large Russet potatoes, peeled and diced
4 medium red potatoes, diced
1/4 cup flour
2 cups chicken or vegetable stock
Coarse salt, freshly ground pepper, to taste
4 cups heavy whipping cream
Optional garnishes: chopped chives, bacon bits, sour cream, shredded cheddar and Monterey Jack cheese

______________________
Directions:
1.In a 6- to 8-quart stockpot over medium heat, fry bacon until crisp.

2.Remove bacon and drain on paper towels, reserving half for garnish. In bacon fat, cook onions, carrots, and celery until the onions are translucent. Add potatoes and cook for 4 minutes, stirring occasionally.

3.Whisk in flour and stir constantly over low heat until the flour is cooked and the mixture has thickened slightly, about 5 to 7 minutes. Add chicken stock and half of the bacon. Season with salt and pepper.

4.Over medium-high heat, bring the soup to a simmer and cook for 25 minutes or until the potatoes are soft. Mash some of the potatoes for thicker, creamier texture. Add whipping cream and simmer for 5 minutes.

5.Adjust thickness by adding water or stock. Soup should have a creamy consistency.

6.Season to taste, and garnish with toppings.

Cooks’ notes: Soak diced potatoes in cold water until ready to use to keep them from turning brown. To make bacon easier to chop, lightly freeze.
