Spicy Grilled Corn Soup

May 21, 2014

Spicy grilled corn soup from Gourmet Fury is a delicious way to prepare this summer vegetable.  Fresh golden ears of corn are blistered on the grill before being added to the soup.  By grilling the corn beforehand, it adds a smoky flavor to the dish that compliments the chile.  The recipe does not specify the kind of chile used in this soup, it's personal preference.  For mild heat, opt for a jalapeno or serrano.  If you really like it hot, graduate to a habanero.  Serve this soup with shopped avocado and tortilla chips.
