Creamy Corn Soup With Red Bell Pepper

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by lazyme

We love this simple, tasty soup. It's a little bit spicy, but you can control the spiciness by the amount of chipotles you add. ZWT Mid-West region (corn).

I enjoyed this corn soup and I thought it was very easy to put together. I only used a little over 1 tbsp of chipoltles and that was just the right amount for me. I made this as written, and I think the 2 cups of water should be chicken (or veggie) broth. After the soup was done, I tasted it, and went back and added some chicken bouillion. That did the trick. I did garnish with the fresh cilantro....I love the stuff. The cheese-lovers out there might enjoy some pepper-jack cheese in or on top of this soup. I will certainly make this again (with the broth of course). Thanx for sharing this.
