  • 2 slices bacon chopped
  • 1 cup carrots diced
  • 1 cup onions diced
  • 1 cup celery diced
  • 2 tsp garlic finely chopped
  • 1 tsp chipotle in adobo sauce finely chopped
  • 4 cups low sodium chicken broth
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 dried bay leaf
  • 1 cup red bell pepper diced
  • 1 pound shrimp
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper


  • Chop the bacon into small pieces and sautee the bacon with the diced onion, celery, and carrots over medium-high heat for 6-8 minutes or until the onion is soft and translucent. Add the garlic and cook for an additional minute.
  • Add the chicken broth, chipotle, bay leaf and thyme. Cover the pot and bring to a simmer. Let simmer for about 15 minutes.
  • Add the red bell pepper and bring back to a simmer.
  • Add the shrimp and cream. If the shrimp are pre-cooked, just heat the soup to a boil, then season with salt and pepper and serve. Simmer the soup for an additional 2-3 minutes if the shrimp is uncooked.


Adjust the chipotle to suit your palate.
