   ~----------------- SOUP:
   Place shrimp, 1 cup of the broth and the Casera Sauce
   in blender container.  Cover and blend on high speed
   until smooth.  Heat shrimp mixture, remaining broth,
   the salt, saffron and pepper to boiling in 3-quart
   sauce pan.  Mix water and corn starch; stir into
   shrimp mixture. Heat to boiling, stirring constantly.
   Boil and stir for 1 minute.  Remove from heat; stir in
   half and half.  Sprinkle with parsley. CASERA SAUCE:
   Mix all ingredients in glass or plastic bowl.  Cover
   and refrigerate up to 7 days.
   NOTE:
   Use leftover Casera Sauce for spicing soups to saucing
   seafood.  Casera Sauce is delicious anywhere the zing
   of cilantro and jalapeno is welcomed.
