Shrimp Corn Soup

1 8 oz pkg. cream cheese
½-cup butter
1 cup chopped green onion tops
1 can cream of shrimp soup
1 can cream of potato soup
1 can whole kernel corn (we might but 2 next time we did not feel it was enough) not drained
1 can cream style corn
2 cups whole milk
1 lb of boiled shrimp peeled and deveined
1 teaspoon seafood seasoning (we used Ol Bay)
Can use crumbled bacon to garnish

In a 5-quart soup pot, slowly melt the cream cheese and butter over low heat
(This took some time as it was the first time for me to do and the cream cheese was awful slow to melt.)
Add green onions and gently simmer for about 10 to 12 minutes
Stir in cans of soup and both of corn simmer for 15 minutes (this will look thick)
Slowly stir in milk to reach desired consistency. We put in ½ cup and then just kept adding and stirring
You soup should look like pancake batter.
Just before you are ready to serve stir in shrimp and seafood seasoning and heat pot to a slight bubbly (don’t go over board.)
This was a good one. We would add maybe some roasted garlic and extra can of corn next time.
We also added a tad of salt and pepper to taste.
In addition, of course with shrimp it was much better the next day as it had time to absorb the shrimp flavor.
We also thought this would be really good in a bread bowl. You must have a good bread to go with this.
We used a good French bread. Was not able to get a good picture we ate it up so fast.
