"In using the spoon, he holds it in his right hand like the fork. In eating cereal or dessert, he may be allowed to dip the bowl of the spoon toward him and eat from the end, but in eating soup he must dip his spoon away from him—turning the outer rim of the bowl down as he does so—fill the bowl not more than three-quarters full and sip it, without noise, out of the side (not the end) of the bowl."
-Emily Post, Behaviorist
This soup has it all. Great Southwestern spices, savory chicken, veggies and sweet corn flavor. For a lot of folks this won't be as spicy as they would like it, and it might actually be mild enough for those with GERD. The spices are milder and the onions have cooked for a long time, making the soup sweet and not spicy.
If you want yours spicier, add a bit of cayenne pepper when you add the other spices. If there are those in your family who don't like spicy food, follow the recipe and put some hot sauce on the table for those who want some.
There are a number of varieties of corn, some used for feed and others for milling. Popcorn is a variety unto itself. For the purposes of cooking corn, or corn on the cob, most recipes use only sweet corn. Interestingly, Native Americans didn't eat much of this corn, finding it to be too sweet and the texture too creamy. Corn »
