This soup was created as a way to use up some surplus corn, and it was a HUGE hit with every diverse set of tastebuds in both my family and my husband's family. The spiciness can be adjusted by adding more or less chipotle and adobo sauce. If you are serving kids, try using only 1 poblano and one chipotle, with no adobe sauce. You can add a little extra red bell pepper (sweet) for color, too. My 2 1/2 year old lapped it up this way. But even my pregnant SIL, who has acid reflux and isn't eating spicy food, made a special exception for this soup when it was spicy, because it was so good. It's flexible. I hope you like it :) The secret is really making the broth with the cobs and scraping off some of the extra corn bits :) But I think it might be okay with frozen corn too, in the winter or if you are short on time. By the way, when I say chopped, I mean pretty big bite size pieces...You want some big chunks to bite into. Except the poblanos. Probably want to distribute those a bit.
