This Mexican soup lures you with the smoky aroma of roasted capsicum! It is packed with the vibrant flavours of sautéed onions and flame-roasted capsicum, which contrast beautifully with the soothing sweet corn base.

Make sure you sauté the onions in butter, because that enhances the taste of the Sweet Corn and Capsicum Soup significantly. A bowlful of this delightful soup is sure to make your day special!

Sweet Corn and Capsicum Soup, Burritos and Mexican Fried Rice make a hearty meal.

Sweet Corn and Capsicum Soup ( Mexican)
 on 26 Sep 15 04:33 PM

Sweet corn and capsicum soup.. A thick creamy.. with a slight sweet taste.. I loved the combination of the corn and the roasted capsicum taste. The milk makes the soup more creamy, with a crunchy bite in every sip.
