Ingredients

  • 2 ½ cups corn kernels removed from the cob
  • 2 Tablespoons of butter
  • cup white onion finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic diced
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • Salt and pepper to taste

FOR SERVING

  • 1 pepper Poblano pepper roasted, cleaned, deveined, and finely chopped
  • ½ cup Queso Fresco cut into cubes
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 tbsp Mexican Cream or Heavy cream for garnish optional

Instructions

  • Pull off the cornhusks from the fresh sweet corn and remove. Cut the kernels using a sharp knife; be careful to remove only the grains. 
  • Melt butter in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Add onion and garlic. Cook, stirring to avoid sticking to the bottom until the onion and garlic are softened but not browned, about 5 minutes.
  • Increase heat to medium-high; add the corn and the 2 cups of chicken broth, bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to medium-low and gently simmer for 15 minutes, or until corn is tender. Once, you cook the corn, remove about ½ cup of kernels with a slotted spoon and reserve for garnishing.
  • While the soup simmers, mix the tablespoons of all-purpose flour with the 2 cups of milk. Mix well to avoid any lumps.
  • Place milk and flour mixture into the blender and add the cooked corn kernels with the broth. Process the soup until smooth. Return pureed soup to the saucepan and simmer over medium heat until it’s hot and the soup thickens about five more minutes. Stir soup to avoid sticking to the pan. It should have a thick consistency. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Serve creamy corn soup in bowls and garnish with the Poblano peppers, the reserved corn kernels, and cubes of cheese. You can also add a drizzle of Mexican cream or heavy cream. And if you can find Squash Blossoms, used them for garnish.
