Useful tips for Creamy Corn and Roasted Pepper Soup

Potatoes vary quite a bit in size. The four we used were the size of tennis balls. Make sure to adjust your recipe if yours are bigger so you don’t end up with crazy thick soup.

Poblano peppers have a kick. They’re not necessarily spicy, but if you’re sensitive (or feeding this soup to kids), maybe cut the pepper in half.

If you like your soup thinner, add a bit more water. There’s enough flavor that it won’t dilute it too much.

Like your soup with a little texture? We love adding quinoa, shaved brussel sprouts, corn, black beans, and raw onions to this soup. Really turns it into a meal.
