Get Cheffy – what does this mean? This usually requires a bit more time, some additional steps on the cooks’ part but has its rewards in delivering extra flavor. For added depth of flavor, grill the peppers and onion (cut into quarters) before dicing and adding to the soup. If you are making the soup with fresh corn, grill it and remove the kernels before adding to the soup. You can also broil the diced peppers and onion until slightly charred. Frozen and thawed corn can also be broiled (separately from the onions and peppers) before using.
