It's also easy to make, and can be prepared from start to finish in 15 minutes. Does it get any better?
Oh, yes it does. The soup also tastes great!
Corn 'n' Pepper Soup
1 tablespoon oil
1/3 cup finely diced red onion
1/4 cup finely diced yellow pepper
1/4 cup finely diced orange pepper
1/4 cup finely diced red pepper
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
generous pinch freshly ground black pepper
generous pinch red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon taco seasoning
1 15-ounce can creamed corn
1/4 cup light beer or water
1 ounce shredded Pepper Jack cheese
In a small saucepan, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion, peppers, salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes; saute 2-3 minutes, until vegetables are softening. Add taco seasoning, corn, and beer; bring just to a boil, then lower heat to medium-low. Stir in cheese until melted, then serve hot.
Makes 2 servings.
