Creamy Corn & Roasted Pepper Soup

I’m a fan of grocery stores like Trader Joe’s, Sprouts and Whole Foods. As with most things I cook, I find myself having to change things to create my own little concoction. Try Trader Joe’s Cream Corn and Roasted Pepper Soup for instance. It is really tasty on it’s own, but I can never leave things just as they are. Adding a few things to this, can make dinner seem like it took a lot of effort to prepare. If you’re like me, sometimes I find myself in a real pinch for something quick. Here’s what I whipped up in about 10 minutes! What kind of twist would you put on this?
