Double this recipe or you'll regret it tommorrow! I substituted one can of cream corn for one cup of the chicken broth. The potatoes take 10 min longer than stated, but this soup is a definate winner. Recently I made it with low sodium broth for my sister who has high blood pressure and the flavor was still great. I served it in bread bowls with a mixed greens salad. I'll try the red bell pepper next time.
