This is one of the best soups I have ever eaten. The chef is exactly right, it does stand on it's own as a main course. With some bread or crackers this is a tasty fulfilling meal that leaves you warm inside on a cold fall or winter day and still lets you have some room for dessert!

This a a terrific soup - warming and filling and easy to make. I didn't change a thing except I threw in a handful of finely chopped chives bnecause I liked the bits of green with the bits of bacon and the corn - made a pretty color combo. Thank you so much - I will definitely make this again soon.

Gourmet Mag rarely publishes a bad recipe. This was VERY good. I used fresh corn off the cob as it is in season now. I did not have cream or bacon on hand so I used leftover ham and regular 2% milk. It turned out just fine to me. I must mention that I was so suprised that the recipe called for cumin. It really made the soup! On another seasoning note...I did not have to salt this at all. It was plently salty fromt he ham and cheese all on its own. Test before you bother. A lot of black pepper was the ticket for me.

Very good. I topped mine with some sour cream and a little paprika and season-all salt in addition to the pepper. I served with a salad and some toasted bread. The only improvement I think it could have would be a little spice...any suggestions? Maybe a little cayenne pepper next time.

Excellent! I tasted this when I made it, but had to actually eat it later on in the day. I must say that this soup is even better reheated! My advice is to double the recipe so you'll have a great soup for now and an even greater soup to reheat! This is a keeper for sure. Thanx Bev!

Delicous soup! I added a bit more potato and only used 1 tsp cumin. Your directions are very good. I like this recipe because it only makes 4 servings. Perfect comfort food. I will be making this recipe again. Thanks Bev.

This was delicious and filling! I added more potatoes and 1/2 a cup fat free sour cream. I prefer this recipe over my potato soup recipes. I doubled it to have leftovers to freeze and it turned out great. You won't be disappointed.
