Shrimp Soup

Leanne D.


This is a delicious spicy soup when you use the Mexican tomato sauce,I use Patio brand. If you don't care for spicy,just use Hunt's tomato sauce. If you can't find shrimp bouillon,you can use chicken bouillon,you may not need to salt the soup as the bouillon cubes are salty.Taste first.
