  • 4 slices bacon chopped
  • 1 cup carrots diced
  • 1 cup onions diced
  • 1 cup celery diced
  • 1 cup potato peeled and diced
  • 2 tsp garlic finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp 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 cup corn niblets
  • 1 pound shrimp peeled and deveined
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper

For the flour slurry

  • 2 tbsp all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup water


  • Sautee the chopped bacon with the onion, celery, and carrots over medium heat for about 6 minutes or until the onion is translucent. Add the garlic and cook for an additional minute. Remove any excess bacon fat.
  • To the bacon and veggies, add the chicken broth, bay leaf, thyme, minced chipotle, and potatoes. Simmer for about 10 minutes.
  • Make a slurry with the flour and water by adding water to the flour and whisking until there are no lumps.
  • Add the red bell pepper and corn and the flour slurry while stirring; bring back to a simmer.
  • Add the shrimp and cream to finish the soup. If your shrimp are cooked simply heat the soup through to a boil and season and serve. If the shrimp are uncooked, simmer them in the soup for a few minutes or until they are cooked. Season with salt and pepper and serve!


Adjust the chipotle to suit your palate.
