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.

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

Ingredients Nutrition


  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. 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. 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. 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.
