Tips for Making Creamy Seafood Soup Recipe

• In the ingredients I have listed one cup Sweet Bell Peppers OR Cherry Peppers OR Jalapenos Peppers, diced small. You can mix and match; 1/3 of a cup of each, ½ of two out of three, or one cup of only one of the three. I will say that a mixture makes for a beautiful soup.

• Use bay scallops to keep down costs, and to keep things bite-sized without the work of cutting up sea scallops.

• If you are using larger shrimp, you may want to cut it up into bite-sized pieces.

• Make certain to dice all your vegetables small.

• The finished creamy seafood soup can be served in a bowl on its own, or add some rice to the bowl and spoon the seafood soup over the rice. You may also want to make some fresh homemade yeast rolls to accompany this delicious soup!

• This recipe may be doubled. Just make sure your Dutch oven is large enough to hold everything. A 6-7 cup Dutch oven is fine to make this recipe as written. If you do not have a Dutch oven, or want to make a double or triple batch, use a large soup pot!

• This creamy seafood soup recipe freezes beautifully. Just make certain you use freezer grade containers. Hubby buys them in giant packs, and we keep the extras down the basement. Our freezer sometimes looks like a frozen soup factory exploded in it. We freeze soup, stews, leftovers, garden vegetables, etc for later use all year long!
