-If you do not have any sort of milk around, or are running low, use 1/2 the liquid from the canned corn. The starchy water will help thicken the soup up.
 -When mixing in cheese make sure to stir it on the top before stirring through out the pot to prevent it from melting to the bottom of the pot and burning.
