  2. 2.Add the chopped onion and minced garlic to the pot. Cook until the onion is translucent and the garlic is fragrant, about 5 minutes.
  3. 3.Add the diced red bell pepper, ground cumin, ground paprika, and cayenne pepper to the pot. Stir to combine and cook for another 2 minutes.
  4. 4.Add the thawed corn, vegetable broth, and diced potatoes to the pot. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender.
