Why I Love This Recipe

This is a great soup on a cold day. I love it with cornbread. I like to double the batch and freeze it.

Ingredients You'll Need

2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 stalks of celery, finely chopped
1 medium red bell pepper
1 medium onion, finely chopped
1 jalapeno, finely chopped, seeds and membrane removed
1/2 Cup cooked, chopped bacon
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 14 oz cans chicken broth
3 Tablespoons flour
3 ears of fresh corn kernels
4 oz softened cream cheese
1 Cup milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 Cup shredded cheddar cheese


Place olive oil in a large pot over medium heat.

Saute celery, bell pepper, onion and jalapeno until softened.

Stir in garlic and bacon; cook for another 3 minutes.

Whisk the broth with the flour in a large bowl then stir into soup.

Stir in corn and bring to a low boil and reduce heat.

Whisk together the cream cheese and milk in a large bowl until smooth.

Stir into soup along with the salt, pepper and cheddar cheese.

Simmer until ready to serve.
