Didn't have roasted corn so added some smoked paprika. Chipotle chili powder unavailable in my region so used part of a knorr chipotle chili cube That must be way hotter than chili powder as I am reeling from heat and this is when I decreased tabasco to 1/2 tsp. afterwards to decrease heat I 1 added more vegetable broth and then when that did not decrease enough I added some Sour cream. Oh that worked. I will not rate as with my changes it took away from recipe and was too hot for me. If I liked it at first I would have rated. This way someone else can benefit from my mistakes and make as wish.
