Spicy Corn Bell Pepper Soup

Last weekend we were trying to get over our mild cold and wanted to have some soup. I opened one of my Vegetarian cook books and looked at this recipe with corn and bell pepper. I liked it for its simplicity and so adapted its method to prepare this soup . I tried it out and I must say it was very comforting, tasty and had a good flavor. I made almost 2 and 1/2 quarts and it was all gone in 30 minutes. If you like cilantro this one is a winner. One thing though, I think its important to use frozen corn instead of fresh because its important not to have a lot of husk remains in the soup. My entry to No Croutons Required :Soup for this month.

  6. Yummy! I made this last night and loved it.

    Here are my mods: no cilantro, as I'm not in love with that herb ... more corn ... used a can of green chiles instead of fresh. It was delish.

    In fact, I get to eat it again for lunch today! Yay!
