Corn Soup (Sopa De Elote)

"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
