Here we have a very Mexican recipe since the main ingredient is “the corn" – which is nutritious, it provides lots of energy and it is a basic ingredient of the Mexican cuisine.
In this cream the corn is ground and is combined with other ingredients that complement its flavor and they cover it with freshness. Since it is a cream milk and butter is used; as base – which give a creamy consistency and a soft flavor.
Although this soup hides a trick since not all the corn kernels are ground... therefore while you eat it you will be enjoying some fresh and crispy corn kernels.
This is a perfect dish for the little ones because it is sweet. Likewise moms love it as it is easy to make, of quick preparation and the most important is cheap.
