This recipe is enough for 8 servings, you can easily divide the recipe to suit your quantity needs, or you can freeze half of it for another day. It keeps for up to 6 months!

Recipe Adapted from
16 ears yellow corn
4 tablespoons butter, (cut into small pieces)
1 tablespoon coarse salt
2 teaspoons paprika
1 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon sugar
Tortilla chips, (optional)
Lime wedges, (optional)
Scallions, sliced, (optional)
- Remove husks and silks from corn. Holding ears in a large bowl, slice off kernels (to yield about 10 cups). When slicing corn from cobs, work in a deep bowl to catch the kernels and any juices. In two batches, puree kernels and accumulated juices with a total of 2 cups water until chunky.
- In a large saucepan over medium-high heat, cook pureed corn, butter, 4 cups water, paprika, pepper, sugar and salt until butter is melted and soup is heated through, 5 minutes.
- Serve hot, garnished with tortilla chips, lime wedges, and sliced scallions, as desired.
