Since the ingredients were all sweet vegetables, it was going to be sweet. So I started out with a stick of butter. I used one can of creamed corn, 1/2 bag of frozen corn, and used two cans of Rotel. Then I added Old Bay, salt, and coarse Tellicherry pepper. This recipe had all the makings of great soup and is easily altered for anyone’s taste.

I agree that it's easy to make, but am wondering if anyone else found it way too sweet. If I try it again, I'll use fresh or frozen corn instead of the cream-style corn, and make a skim milk liquid base.
