One of my all-time favorite soups is corn soup.what can I say, I’m a big fan of corn. That’s why when I discovered the recipe for corn chowder it soon became my all-time preferred soup for the summer. I make this soup quite often and once in a while I’ll even serve it on bread. My family loves this soup so much I have to make enough for seconds. I know it’s a little weird to make soup during the summer when we are craving salads, but corn is in season and so fresh…we need to use it!

You know how much I like to eat fruits and vegetables that are in season. It is very important for me to eat what the seasons offer and for my produce to be locally grown. In my neck of the woods, we have watermelon, corn, tomato, and peaches during the summer months that are local, and delicious. I should add you should try to buy organic produce whenever it is possible. I always buy organic tomatoes and peaches; you can check out this list of the 12 pesticide-heavy fruits and vegetables so that you can buy them organic instead.Receta saludable de sopa de elote con chile poblano o corn chowder con poblano. corn chowder Receta saludable de sopa de elote con chile poblano o corn chowder con poblano.

I am super excited because my girls are coming back tomorrow. I missed them so much! I swore up and down I wasn’t going to miss them and that I would be making good use of my time finishing up several projects I have going on…but at the end of the day I did miss them, and my projects didn’t move along as much as I wanted them to. (I’ll let you know about them later because they are cool) I hope I get to finish them soon.

Hi Ale. This looks like a wonderful soup and I’m looking forward to trying it. I noticed in the recipe that you call for “5 corn husks” which I’m going to assume means the kernels sliced from 5 ears. “Husks” usually means the green outer covering which you need to remove. One more English language quirk…
