Very easy, excellent taste. I make the recipe as written and not make any adjustments.
Very tasty & easy
So deliciously flavorful. Double the recipe, trust me, you'll want leftovers.
Fantastic!!! Made the other night and was very pleased and so was the family. Served over a bed of rice though, bulked up the meal a bit. Will be making again for sure.
Made this last night and I LOVED it. I'm a total shrimp lover and this was a delight. I used regular whipping cream and precooked shrimp (added shrimp after mixing soup with sour cream mixture) and it turned out great. I also used a suggestion I read on this page and used guacamole instead of avocado and I'm glad I did. Every flavor complemented the other. Will definately make this again.
