    Bayhill's Note:

    Posted for the Zaar World Tour-Mexico. I haven't tried this recipe yet, but I plan to. Pureeing the corn in this recipe gives this soup a creamy appearance.

    1. 1
      If using fresh corn, cut kernels from cobs. Scrape cobs with a spoon; discard cobs. Measure corn; you should have about 1-1/2 cups. Puree 3/4 cup corn in a blender or food processor; set aside.
    2. 2
      Mash garlic with salt to make a paste. Melt butter in a large saucepan. Add onion and garlic paste. Cook until onion is tender but not browned. Add tomatoes.
    3. 3
      Cook slowly 10 minutes, mashing tomatoes with a spoon. Add broth, chiles, oregano, pureed corn and whole corn kernels. Taste and add salt if needed.
    4. 4
      Bring to a boil; reduce heat. Cover and simmer 30 minutes. Stir in cream. Cook until heated through. To serve, pour into soup bowls and garnish with cilantro leaves.

      Tasty and easy soup! I used canned green chilis and fresh corn. I used beef broth as specified but I think I might like it better with chicken broth and will try that next time. I liked the way the pureed corn thickened the soup and added some creaminess. Thanks for sharing your recipe! Made for Spring Pick-A-Chef 2014

      This was pretty good soup. I did not have any tomatoes on hand so I used a 14.5oz can of diced tomatoes instead. I did not have any beef broth but I did have some chicken stock in the freezer that I made last month so I subbed that in, and I used 2 % milk in place of the cream since I am trying to watch the fat and I already used butter. I also had a leftover grilled chicken breast from last evening that I diced up and threw in to make it a bit more hearty for dinner. I think the only thing I would change for next time would be to add more corn. The soup was really good but with it being called corn soup, I was expecting the corn to have a more prominent role in flavor of the dish. I would probably double the amount of corn next time and leave everything else the same. Thanks for a wonderful recipe.
