Introduction

Corn shares the spotlight with chicken in this well-seasoned soup. Blending part of the corn with the broth is a really simple and easy way to thicken up the soup and boost the flavor.

Very low in calories & absolutely delicious!

    Awesome! I'm a vegetarian, so I omitted the chicken and used vegetable broth, but the soup was still SO GOOD! :) - 2/10/10

    Wonderful soup. I used jalapenos instead of the chilis. Added a little more zing. I also used cilantro instead of the oregano. Didn't use as much corn as in the recipe - wish I would have. But very good anyway. Smoked chicken added even a little more enjoyable flavor. I'll definitely make this again - 2/18/10

    This was very delicious. I should have added a bit more chiles to give it a little more punch as it was a little on the sweeter side when I followed the directions above and I like this kind of soup with a kick. It was really good though. My husband and I both loved it. - 2/9/10
