I added directions to make this soup on the stove top but it does take a bit longer to make.  It’s still easy enough but you will have to “babysit” the stove per se, and stir occasionally.  To make it on the stove top, the ingredients do get added in a different order to make sure that the peppers, potatoes, and corn are the right texture and consistency that making it the Instant Pot would create.

Ingredients for the Soup

For this corn and pepper soup, I used mini sweet bell peppers.  You can use bell peppers in place of the mini’s but the flavor will be different than what I was going for with this soup.  By using the mini sweet bell peppers, it gives this soup a refreshing sweet flavor that pairs perfect with Spring and Summer dishes.  I used frozen super sweet corn as well to keep the flavors balanced with the mini peppers.  I peeled and diced up 2 medium sized potatoes for this recipe and it make this soup deliciously creamy.  Adding the the heavy cream make this soup a little thicker and incorporated all the flavors together well.
