Traditionally I use heavy cream and no chicken. I wanted to try something in the crock pot and thought the cream of shrimp would be good and it was pretty darn good. We did a recipe last week with cream of shrimp and it was really yummy.  My boss Beth does a fish dish with cream of shrimp and it is great . I had some chicken so I added it to the pot too.  I couldn’t think of another name so….. Shrimp and grits it was. It was very creamy and delicious.

½ stick of butter

½ cup of Green bell pepper

½ cup of Red bell pepper

¾ cup of celery

1 cup of onions

2 cans of cream of shrimp soup  

Slap ya Mama (Cajun Seasoning) to taste

Salt and pepper to taste
