Creole Soup

Special seasonings set this flavorful soup apart from any others I've tried. It makes a nice big batch, so it's perfect when feeding a crowd. Plus, leftovers freeze well. - Del Mason, Martensville, Saskatchewan

    Excellent soup. I have made this Creole Soup with 1/2 lb. of shrimp which changed the taste only slightly. Once, I added 1 more tsp. of Cajun Seasoning and it had a good punch of heat. Since I live the Low Country of SC, I made it adding 1 cup of Okra and sausage. TIP: Use your largest pot for this recipe.

    Really good soup! Perfect amount of spice/heat, too. The only change I made to the recipe was to use 4 cups of beef broth in place of 4 c. of the water. I definitely will make it again.

    Best soup recipe that I have came across. I could eat this for ever meal. The only thing i changed was instead of 1tsp of the seasonings i use 1/2 tsp so it is not as spicy.

    Added 3/4 lb of fresh cooked, shelled shrimp, cut into thumbtip sized bits. Enough to add shrimp flavor but not take over. TRULY GREAT
