Hearty and satisfying, this pretty Mexican corn chowder soup is a family favorite, even the kids love it! If you are cooking for the family, use a larger saucepan and double all the ingredients up! You will notice I blend half the cooked corn into the broth, allowing the chowder to still retain plenty of texture by having the remaining corn left whole. And you will love the green bell pepper and bacon addition!

    3. To the same pan and add the green bell peppers, cooking over moderate heat until they soften and start to caramelize a little. Remove and set aside on a small plate lined with a paper towel.

    6. Use a slotted spoon to remove half the corn from the saucepan. Set it aside. Use a hand blender right there in the pan to puree the remaining corn with the broth. Puree until the mixture is as smooth as possible.

    7. Return the corn to the pan, along with the bacon, green peppers, crème Fraiche, and cream. Allow the soup to warm through over moderate heat for a few minutes. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
    8. Divide the soup between two bowls and stir through a drizzle of more cream if you like. Sprinkle on a pinch of cayenne pepper and garnish each with crumbled feta, sliced chilies, and fresh cilantro.
