Mexican Corn Soup

Mexican Corn Soup

Introduction

Corn shares the spotlight with chicken in this well-seasoned soup. Blending part of the corn with the broth is a really simple and easy way to thicken up the soup and boost the flavor.

Very Low Calorie & absolutely Delicious !!!

    Wonderful soup. I used jalapenos instead of the chilis. Added a little more zing. I also used cilantro instead of the oregano. Didn't use as much corn as in the recipe - wish I would have. But very good anyway. Smoked chicken added even a little more enjoyable flavor. I'll definitely make this again - 2/18/10

    Awesome! I'm a vegetarian, so I omitted the chicken and used vegetable broth, but the soup was still SO GOOD! :) - 2/10/10

    This was very delicious. I should have added a bit more chiles to give it a little more punch as it was a little on the sweeter side when I followed the directions above and I like this kind of soup with a kick. It was really good though. My husband and I both loved it. - 2/9/10

  • Delicious, and easy to make! I'm not a huge fan of cooking but I found this recipe really easy to make and has simple ingredients, which I love! I used a fresh chopped jalepeno pepper and it definitely added a zip to the soup! Will definitely make again. - 7/12/11

  • This was pretty good. I love the idea that it is corn that is the main thickener! I only had 2% milk, so i used that and low fat cheese. It is a filling soup which I also like. It did lack a bit of flavor though, so I may add an onion and more spices next time, but I will probably make it again. - 5/16/11

  • Loved this recipe, used the entire can of green chilies and substituted skim milk. May sub cilantro for the oregano next time as I see another user did. Easy, inexpensive, and oh so delicious!!! - 1/21/11

  • I made this and then served it over rice. I really liked it, but would probably use less milk so it would be a little thicker. I used leftover chicken we had cooked on the grill. This was a nice quick and easy recipe. I have leftovers that I plan to freeze. I hope it tastes as good reheated! - 11/12/10
