How to Make Creamy Corn Soup
More about this Mexican corn soup!
This corn soup recipe is creamy and delicious, amigos! It’s a perfect way to use all the corn we have bought from our local farmer stand.
Which mean this Mexican corn soup recipe will be sweet and another crowd-pleaser.
This Sopas de Maiz we used corn on the cob as stated above, and what we do is we grill the cobs.
I grill the corn before cooking it to add a smoky flavor to the soup. However, if you don't feel like turning up the grill, you can skip the step and just cook the corn kernels with the onion.
Why use cobs to make corn soup?
I like to simmer the cobs because it's a natural way to thicken soup!
Can I Use Frozen Kernels to Make Corn Soup?
Yes, you can use frozen kernels if you don’t have cobs on hand to make this Mexican Creamy Corn Soup.
If you are using frozen corn kernels, please add around 1 Tablespoon of cornstarch to the soup to thicken it up.
