Great soup. I skipped the oil and put this all in the crock pot. I also added less salt. The lime wedges are a must! All solid flavors together.

Great combination making for a rich and creamy corn chowder with a wonderful zip to it. Quick and easy to put together. Made as posted - no optionals added, only because I didn't happen to have them on hand. Freshly ground pepper a given! Another PaulaG winner that will be seeing to repeats at our house. Made for Soup Is On.
