I love love this recipe! It's so easy, yet yummy! The only thing I changed was I added Siracha (sp)for the hot sauce.This is my new go-to soup for corn chowder! Next time I might put some new potatoes in it.

This was a hearty, comforting soup with a great combination of flavors...it's sweet and creamy and a little spicy. I added a few sliced jalapenos to my bowl, which just kicked it up another notch.
