"I agree with the other reviews. This is so tasty and easy to prepare. My hubby and I actually like the sligtly sweet taste from the creamed corn and I also add some frozen corn to the mix. I process 1 1/2-2 cups soup in the food processor then add back to the pot for extra some texture. Add chopped ham after processing. YUM"

"The cream corn made this soup a little to sweet for me. I also ended up adding a bit of hot sauce and thyme to give it some kind of taste."

"I've been making this recipe since it was first published in Quick Cooking. It's one of our favorite soups. I often add diced ham to make it more of a meal for dinner. It's perfect reheated for lunch, too!"
