I always know when a recipe is a hit, when my husband has seconds. I didn't have any Mexican oregano, I will get some though to taste the difference, I used regular oregano, still good. my husband wants me to use some fish with the shrimp next time, might be interesting to see how it turns out... Thanks for sharing Read More

This was so yummy!!! I used my crock pot and let everything cook on high heat for about an hour. Then added the noodles and shrimp until the shrimp turned pink about 10 mins additional. I also added black beans and half of a white onion. Very easy to make. Already am planning to make this again. Read More

Nice change up for dinner. Don't overcook the shrimp as I saw someone cooked for 10 minutes. Cut the crushed red pepper in half; added a bit more broth. I made simple cheese and salsa quesadillas that went well with this. Added baked corn tortilla chips to add to soup for crunchy texture. This will be a staple in my house. Read More

I didn t have Mexican oregano so used marjoram. I also didn t have a spiralizer so cut the zucchini in to match sticks sized pieces. It was very good and will make it again. Read More

This turned out good. It was fast and very easy which makes for a great weeknight meal. The only thing I had to do different was add another can of broth. Otherwise this was not have been near enough soup or liquid. I would make this again. Read More

I added onion and garlic and a teaspoon of cumin. It was definitely spicy which I liked but a little hot for my wife. You might want to cut back on the chili powder a bit to suit your taste. Definitely will be making again. Read More

I modified the recipe by adding about 1/2 a diced onion, sautéed before herbs/spices were added. I also doubled the amount of zucchini and added garlic. I used canned diced tomatoes with chipotle for extra kick. I added a little extra (8 oz) of tomato sauce with about a tablespoon of tomato paste. EXCELLENT SOUP - great flavor and kick. LOW carbs/calories! Yum Read More
