Spicy Potato & Corn Soup

My husband requested a “corn and potato type” soup. So I delivered with this – a spicy, hearty, bowl of goodness that has quickly become a family favorite. Try it!

It’s the late fall and I am making soup all the time now. I love this one, which I make with frozen corn, but I bet fresh summer corn would be amazing in this!


  • As with most of my recipes, I like to remind you that vegetables vary in size so don’t get hung up on that. Use your judgement and you will be fine.
  • If you haven’t found Sazon yet, you need to get your hands on this amazing seasoning. I love the Loisa brand and I find myself adding to almost everything I make.
