This Spicy Shrimp Corn and Potato Bisque is simple to make, but so packed with flavor! It’s going to be come a family favorite!

In a white bowl, the Spicy Shrimp Corn and Potato Bisque has a cream colored soap with pieces of shrimp and corn floating.


You guys, I’m so pumped about today’s post! Today I get to share with you this amazing new book from my friend, Shawn over at I Wash You Dry! I absolutely love when I get the chance to support my friends, and this book is AMAZING.

Express Lane Cooking is such a fun concept. The idea behind it is that each recipe requires you to only buy five ingredients from the grocery store . . . in the express lane . . . get it?? :)  And with those five ingredients, Shawn gives you three different dinners that you can make once you add in some ingredients from your pantry.

For example, in this soup the ingredients you’d buy are chipotle chiles in adobo, creamer potatoes, half and half, frozen corn, and shrimp. And the ingredients from the pantry are olive oil, onion, garlic, chicken broth, salt, and pepper.

I had the pleasure of testing some of the recipes from the book while Shawn was writing, and everything I made was easy to put together, and packed with flavor. I especially loved her Spanish Rice and her Enchiladas with homemade sauce. YUMM!

So I was excited to try something different once I got my hands on the book. Nathan asked me to make him this soup and it was such a good pick! The chipotle flavor is amazing, and the rest of the ingredients just go so perfectly together.

I definitely recommend Express Lane Cooking if you are in dinner ruts! It’s a winner!

    The soup looks delicious! How much corn do you add? I didn’t see it listed in the ingredients. Thanks!

    • Lisa Longley says

      Hi Sarah! GAH! Thank goodness for kind readers who catch things. It’s one cup :)

  2. Melissa says

    That sounds like a great book! I love the whole “express lane” idea. I will definitely have to check it out!

  3. Lauren says

    I can’t wait to give this a try! You forgot to mention how much frozen corn in your Ingredients. Do you typically use a whole bag/half of a bag?

    • Lisa Longley says

      Hi Lauren! GAH! Thank goodness for kind readers who catch things. It’s one cup :)

  4. Shawn @ I Wash You Dry says

    Thank you so much for sharing the book Lisa! Thank you for helping me to test the recipe during the process as well! You’re the best! And now I am really craving that soup! :)

    • Lisa Longley says

      You’re so welcome, Shawn! This recipe is such a winner, I can’t wait to try the others!

  5. Michele Cook says

    Just curious, what do you consider “creamer potatoes”? I’m from Idaho (home to famous potatoes!), you’d think I’d have heard that before!

    • Lisa Longley says

      I had to actually look up what they were Michele, but then ended up finding a bag labeled “creamer potatoes” at the grocery store, lol! Honestly, any small potatoes would work great in this recipe.

  6. Sara says

    Since you are blending everything including the potatoes do you peel the potatoes or just blend with the skin on??

    • Lisa Longley says

      You can do either, but I leave the skin on when I make this recipe.

  7. Patrick Murphy says

    I found this recipe to not really produce anything near a bisque so I made a roux with a stick of butter and added that and it really thickened it up into an actual bisque.
