Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat butter in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add onion and cook, stirring, until soft and lightly golden, about 5 minutes.
  2. Heat milk in a saucepan. Add bay leaf, thyme, marjoram, and peppercorns. Just before milk comes to a boil, add the onions, remove the heat and cover.
  3. In a food processor, puree the chilies, tomatillos, and 2 boxes of the corn.
  4. Add the pureed mixture and the remaining box of corn to the milk mixture. Simmer over very low heat for 30 minutes. Add salt to taste.
  5. Pour the soup into individual bowls over cubes of cheddar cheese. Garnish with cilantro. Serve with warm crusty bread.
