{soups-salads-and-salad-dressings} Winning Recipe MEXICAN SHRIMP BISQUE


I have yet another new cookbook.  It’s a Taste of Home Cookbook for two.

Mexican Shrimp Bisque

I enjoy both Cajun and Mexican cuisine, and this rich, elegant soup combines the best of both. I serve it with a crispy green salad and a glass of white wine for a simple but very special meal. —Karen Harris, Castle Rock, Colorado
