So good on a cold day. This recipe feeds 10 but it freezes well. It can be kept in the refrigerator up to 4 days and in the freezer up to 6 months.

2 bell peppers, chopped
2 onions, chopped
2 c celery, chopped
3 Tbl butter
1 tsp sugar
¼ tsp garlic salt
1 tsp paprika
½ tsp thyme
1 can corn, with juice
1 can whole tomatoes, with juice
2 c water
1 lb 30/40 shrimp, peeled with tails removed
¼ tsp celery salt (optional)

Sauté onions, peppers and celery in the butter. In a large pot, put sautéed vegetables and remaining ingredients except shrimp (add it about halfway through cooking). Cook over medium heat for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally, until sauce has reduced and thickened. Serve with crackers.
