The best thing about this soup, apart from the delicious taste, is that it's so easy and quick to make. Please serve it with the Cilantro Cream - it's like the icing on the cake!
You can make this soup for a vegetarian, just leave out the bacon and use vegetable stock - this is how I make it for my husband and it's still delicious.
This recipe has been adapted from a leaflet I found in a supermarket, promoting Sonoma dried tomato halves.
I was browsing through Zaar and none of the Corn Chowders appealed to me so I decided to create my own. I'm so glad I did. My husband made me cook a second batch later that night. He said, "We ought to sell this!"
