1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper

2 quarts chicken stock

8 ounces white or yellow cheddar cheese, preferable extra-sharp, grated


  1. Cut the roasted corn off of their cobs, reserving the cobs. Melt the butter in a large, heavy-bottomed soup pot. Add the corn, the diced vegetables and the seasoning and saute until the vegetables are soft but not browned. Add the chicken stock. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and add the reserved corn cobs. Cook 40 to 45 minutes, remove the cobs and stir in the grated cheese. Serve immediately.;
