I made a few changes and this was still very good--used half and half rather than cream and had no fresh tomatoes so used 2 tablespoons of tomato paste.

I am a total soup person. I want soup ALL of the time, regardless of the weather. I thought this was REALLY good. It was simple to make and could easily pass off as something that took you a lot of time and labor to prepare. My BF loved it, my 9 yr. old son said is was heaven in a bowl, lol! I used frozen corn as I didn't want to waste what I had on hand but next time I will use fresh since this is what I would prefer. I omitted the bacon and instead sauteed the garlic and onion with some southwest chicken chunks from Tyson. Otherwise made exactly as written with parsley, queso fresco and avocado chunks...THANKS!

This was good. I used two cans of corn, which were just at 3 cups. I only used 2 cups of chicken broth, but I think this was enough. I also added two cubed potatoes.

Delicious! I made this for guests along with Mexican layer dip and bean burritos, and it was a huge hit, even with the kids! I'll use more bacon next time, and I doubled the garlic content, but aside from that, it's perfect. Thanks for posting!

This was fabulous. I made it for our dinner last night, using low fat thickened cream. I served with bacon & feta cheese. Enjoyed by all. Will definitely make this again. Thanks for sharing.

Great Soup!!!!! I didn't use the bacon but added a chipotle dried gound pepper. I served it with feta cheese cilantro and corn tortilla strips. There was not even a drop left over will make again and again.

This soup is where it's at! Easy to make and delicious. I wasn't sure how well the bacon would go over, but I was pleasantly surprised. The consistency is somewhere around a thicker, creamier broth, but not quite a chowder. Great appearance, and absolutely packed with flavor. We went the cilantro route which I highly recommend and omitted the queso fresco and tortilla chips and it was still awesome... Thanks for sharing!

Soup is one of my favorite types of food and this one will be added to the keeper folder! I really enjoyed the flavor and it was easy to make. I used feta cheese and left out the cilantro as DH doesn't like it (sprinkled some on mine after it was done). I had to sub evaporated milk for the heavy cream and that worked out fine. I also added a little leftover grilled chicken breast cut into bite size pieces. We ate ours with tortilla chips. I simmered for about an hour and that was fine. Tastes even better the next day. Thanks for a wonderful recipe!

made this and was very nervous about how it would go over. from the picture, it looked like something i would love, but thought my husband would put his nose up at. i tasted it midway through and thought that it wasn't very good, but when all was said and done, YUMMY! We served it with a dollop of sour cream, crumbled bacon, and crumbled nacho chips. It was extremely similar to tortilla soup without the chicken. Even my picky 16 yr old son ate it right up. Great recipe. i used frozen corn and it was fine.

I made this vegetarian style with vegetable broth and the bacon on the side for whoever wanted it. Very good. Thanks for sharing.
