Ready in no time, this chunky and spicy soup requires very little cleanup.
 
16 ounces frozen whole-kernel corn, thawed
12 ounces fat-free evaporated milk
2 ounces chopped green chiles, drained
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/8 teaspoon cayenne (optional)
1/2 medium red bell pepper, finely chopped (optional)
3 medium green onions, finely chopped
2 teaspoons light tub margarine
1/4 cup shredded fat-free sharp Cheddar cheese
 
In a medium saucepan, stir together the corn, milk, green chiles, cumin, pepper, and cayenne. Bring just to a simmer over medium heat, stirring frequently. Remove from the heat.

Good information in a concise form. Good receipes, not complicated with lots of helpful guides. Especially liked the receipe for making your own salt free chili powder.
