Shrimp and Cheese Chowder

I got this recipe from a cookbook, then made a few changes. Super yummy!

2 1/2 c chicken broth
4-5 medium potatoes, roughly peeled and cubed
1/2 c chopped celery
1/4 c green onion, chopped
1 1/2 c skim milk
2/3 c evaporated milk
1/4 c flour
1/4 t pepper
1/4 t cayenne pepper OR chili powder
2 T apple juice
1 c cooked shrimp
1/2 red bell pepper, chopped and lightly sauteed
1 T parsley
1 t Worcestershire sauce
1/2 t paprika
3 oz cheddar cheese, shredded
1/2 t salt

In a soup pot, bring broth to a boil. Add potatoes, celery, and green onion. Return to a boil. Reduce to medium heat, cover and simmer for about 10 minutes - until potatoes are tender. Slowly stir in the skim milk. In another bowl, whisk together the evaporated milk and flour. Add to the pot. Mash about 1/3 of potatoes in the pot with a spoon. Add pepper and cayenee/chili powder. Cook over medium heat until thickened. Stir in apple juice, shrimp, bell pepper (make sure to saute first), parsley, worcestershire sauce and paprika. Remove from heat. Stir in cheese and salt until cheese is melted. Cover and let stand for 15-30 minutes to let flavors blend. Reheat if necessary.
