We enjoyed this filling, warming soup for lunch today. It came together quickly and was nice on a cold, Michigan day. The soup was light and I thought it had just the right amount of heat from the cayenne. I used fat free milk (vs soy) as that is what I had on hand. Also, we just used the immersion blender right in the Dutch oven, with about a cup of soup removed and then added back in. This worked well for the consistency. I had to add quite a bit of salt to taste. Made for Sun and Spice 2013

My first time making a coconut corn chowder & let me tell you this was EASY!!! The folks who ate it up all thought it was great (all except my DH who doesn't like coconut - regardless he still finished his <3 ). The guests said the soup was light, yet sweet, and smooth!! This is definitely an under 30 minute meal & can quite possibly be accomplished in much less. Will definitely be making this again when pinched for time but needing to impress! Thanks so much!
