Literally made this over my lunch break (I work at home) in less than 30 minutes. Had everything in my pantry. Loved the creaminess and the sweetness from the corn followed by the heat of the jalapeno. Followed the recipe exactly. Perfect and quick - will definitely make this again.

Love this recipe and have made it several times! I had to cook my chicken, but it still came together quickly. It's a favorite with my husband, too. Served with jalapeno corn muffins.

Very fast and tasty

Great fast and tasty recipe! I used cream of chicken soup because there was no cream of corn in the store. Just as good!

Delicious...and souper easy! I added two diced carrots with the jalapeno/onion/celery mixture. I used rotisserie chicken breast and topped with crumbled bacon.

I used canned green chillies instead of the jalapeno and it was a great substitute! so quick ad so delicious. I also added a dash of cumin and curry powder which added to the overall flavor. we will definitely make this again!

I made this for dinner tonight and thought it was delicious! Followed the recipe exactly and it turned out great. My husband went back for seconds so we only have a little left. Will definately make this again and next time will double the recipe. Can't wait to make this for company.

Good recipe and extremely simple. I followed the advice of others by cutting the red pepper in half and it was the perfect amount. I also used 1% milk and a frozen corn/asparagus/carrot mix and it was fine. Great recipe - very tasty!

This soup was outstanding, and I will make it again. I'm glad I took the advice from others and cut the cayenne pepper in half!!! Still had plenty of kick. YUMMY...

Great recipe! I didn't have 2% milk, only skim, but it was great anyway. I need to find a clam chowder one that is equally easy and good.

Pretty yummy recipe, I added diced red bell peppers and some chicken stock. Next time I think I'll add diced potatoes and a bay leaf for more added flavor.
