This was really good. If you want it thicker you can add a few spoons of instant mashed potatoes-it gives it a yummy help. I also used canned evaporated milk and dehydrated chopped onion and it still came out great! Last, I added a bit of chopped parsley for added color right towards the end of cooking.

Not a bad recipe, but just average. Spiced it up with some cajun seasoning and used a whole pack of bacon. It was simple and not hard to make but the family was only so-so on it.

This recipe was definetly easy and it wasn't bad. I won't make it again.I prefer it a little thicker and made with fresh corn.

This is a good soup recipe... However, I did use chicken broth in place of water and it required more than the 1/2 cup stated. I probably used about 1 and a half cups. It needed a little bit of salt and LOTS of pepper. Overall, it was quick and easy and quite tasty.

After reading all the great reviews, I was really looking forward to having this on a dreary day. It sounded so good. What a disappointment. It was so bland. Like one reviewer said, it did taste like watered down creamed corn. I even tried adding a touch of garlic, that didn't help, so I added a little ceyenne pepper..no help. So, I tried letting it simmer thinking the flavors might blend...wrong. Finally I added more bacon. All that did was make me waste bacon. It just didn't improve. I won't make this again that is for sure.

It was easy and pretty good, but the broth holding the ingredients together was a bit thin for my tastes. I added 1/4 cup of milk with 3 tablespoons of cornstarch in it to thicken, and a pat of butter. I think next time I'll add some celery.
