this is a copycat recipe for a great soup without chicken, though you could certainly add some.

I was a bit skeptical at first but followed the recipe to the letter. It was an absolute replica of the CPK soup that my family loves so much. I also increased the onion to 1/2 of a medium onion and added extra white corn when it was done. Delicious!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Over medium-high heat, fry tortilla squares in olive oil until they begin to crisp and turn a golden yellow. Add garlic, onion and jalapeno; cook 1 to 2 minutes, until onion becomes translucent.
  2. transfer to an 8 quart pot.
  3. Add half the corn along with all other ingredients (except garnishes), reserving other half of corn to be added at the end. Bring the soup to a low, even boil. Boil for 5 minutes. Remove soup from heat. Use a hand-held propeller blade processor to process in batches to the consistency of a course puree. (You can also process in batches in a blender).
  4. Return the soup to the burner and add the reserved corn. Bring the soup to a boil once again being extremely careful to avoid scorching or burning the soup. Serve, garnished with blue corn tortilla chips, cilantro and sharp cheddar cheese.
