This dish is a variation on a creamy southern Louisiana corn stew. The bold flavor of andouille sausage blends beautifully with the shrimp and subtle spices. —Judy Armstrong, Prairieville, Louisiana

"Absolutely wonderful! We made this a few weeks ago and can't wait to make it again. It was a very hearty soup, more like a stew in that there was not much broth."

"A delicious soup to spice you up on a cold winter night. These flavors are a departure from my usual pantry staples, but I will definitely be making it again. It's zippy, flavorful, and delicious with a side of corn bread. I highly recommend this recipe."
