    Super super!! I omitted the bacon and cut the butter in half. I used frozen corn instead of off the cob. I also garnished with green onions. I used half a bag of coin cut carrots, will use a whole bag next time. Used a half a red bell pepper will use a hole in next time. Was wonderful!!!

    This soup turned out amazing! The only suggestion I would make is using 3 cans of corn instead of taking corn off of the cob. It saved me a ton of time.

    Very good. I used olive oil to sauté the vegetables in lieu of bacon fat to make it lighter. I also added red pepper flakes to add a little heat/spice. I also added grilled chicken to add more protein to make it a full dinner soup.

    Really tasty, a little labor intensive but worth it. May add a little more red pepper and carrot next time for color.

    So good. I used 3 pieces of bacon instead of one and added some crushed red pepper for a little heat. Didn't change anything other than that and it's spectacular!!! Make sure to follow directions exactly to keep milk from scalding.

    It was good but not the right consistency. It tasted pretty good
    This is a really delicious recipe, even toddler friendly. I made add a few adjustments to our taste liking: I used turkey bacon, added 3/4 vegetable broth and 1 can coconut milk instead of milk. I also added two cloves of garlic. Also, I added a pinch of cumin for smokiness and 1 tsp of turmeric. Lastly, a bit of cayenne for heat. When it was done, I used an emersion blender to purée about 2 cups and then added it back to the soup.
