I adjusted this recipe based on the last review. I added one can of creamed corn, 2 t chili powder, one green pepper diced, 1 t garlic powder, and 3T white flour. The result was much lauded by my fiance. It has a good heat while maintaining a nice sweet corn flavor.

This recipe was alright. It came out very bland and needing "something." I ended up adding a lot of different spices such as cayene, chili powder, corriander, salt, garlic/onion powder, just to add something to it that seemed missing. I even added chicken stock and some pieces of leftover roast chicken for flavor. I would suggest adding clam broth to this too. I added the cilantro right to the soup to give it more flavor also. It seemed like a great recipe but realy needed more flavor.
