Delightfully refreshing. For spicy taste--substitute green chiles for green pepper. Add a dollop of salsa or sour cream and chopped chives to enhance the flavor.

Wonderful way to use fresh summer corn. I made this as directed only substituting half-and-half. I also pureed about 1/3 of the soup in a blender and then added it back into the soup along with the remaining ingredients before the final heating. This gave the soup a creamy base along with the texture of the corn... Absolutely delicious!

A great way to use up that extra corn. Reviewed the other recipes and added a few extras - 4 cloves of garlic, a rib of celery, a piece of broccoli, and I substitutes much of the half and half with regular skim milk, a little cream cheese, and some heavy cream. I also ran it through the bleneder and then the food mill to get rid of my old corn hunks and make it creamy smooth. I think it turned out great. Jim in So. California.

Made up a batch of this for lunch and couldn't resist eating half all by myself. I used the green pepper, because I had a left-over part of a peppper to use up, but added a bit of hot pepper sauce to try to mimic the effect of using green chilies. A great, quick, easy lunch or supper, bursting with flavor.
