Mexican Corn Soup

Mexican Corn Soup
Tonight concludes my 3rd night of soup recipes!  I think I've soup'ed out the DIY guy but he really enjoyed this one.  I told him I would make some other type of meals soon!

This is a cream style soup and made that way by pureeing corn and chicken broth.  The original recipe called for 2 cups of skim milk but I used a cup of that and a cup of heavy cream.  I know it added a few more calories but the texture was just right.

Recipe Source:  Adapted from BH&G Low Calorie recipes

From start to finish this soup came together in 20 minutes!  Not too shabby!

With Christmas now just 4 days away, I will be spending the weekend making cookies, pasta sauce and homemade raviolis.  Looking forward to the good food and the family coming home!!!
