    acerast's Note:

    This is from the famous Moosewood Restaurant in Ithaca, NY. It is a wonderful combination of veggies with a Mexican flair and is especially nice in the summer when you can add the corn right off of the cob.

      Excellent recipe, like all of Moosewood recipes. BF and I decided this was 5+ stars. I used 2% milk and low-fat pepper jack, then added 4 dried chiles instead of fresh. I tried it both ways, without blending and with. I think I prefered it without. Blending made it thicker. Very healthful, I'm honored to be the first to give this 5 stars! Thanks very much.
