This soup is very yummy!


  • 3 tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1 1/2 seven-inch Corn Tortillas, cut into 1" squares
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon minced fresh Garlic
  • 2 tablespoon minced White Onion
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon minced Jalapeno Pepper
  • 1 pound White Corn kernels
  • 1 1/2 pounds chopped, ripe red Tomatoes
  • 1/3 cup Tomato Paste
  • 2 1/2 teaspoon ground Cumin
  • 1 tablespoon Kosher salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground White Pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon Chili Powder
  • 1 1/2 cup Water
  • 1 quart chicken stock
  • 24 blue corn tortilla chips (optional garnish)
  • 2 cup shredded cheddar cheese (optional garnish)
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro (optional garnish)


Over medium-high heat, fry tortilla squares in olive oil until they begin to crisp and turn a golden yellow. Add garlic, onion and jalapeno; cook 1 to 2 minutes, until onion becomes translucent. Add half the corn along with all other ingredients (except garnishes), reserving other half of corn to be added at the end. Bring the soup to a low, even boil. Boil for 5 minutes. Remove soup from heat. Use a hand-held propeller blade processor to process in batches to the consistency of a course puree. You can also process in batches in a blender.

Return the soup to the burner and add the reserved corn. Bring the soup to a boil once again being extremely careful to avoid scorching or burning the soup. Serve, garnished with blue corn tortilla chips, cilantro and sharp cheddar cheese.

    I have the origional CPKr recipie book, in the book it states chix broth as the origional recipie, but you can sub veg broth. My book is an old copy, 1st edition.

    CPK states their soup is vegetarian so this isn’t a copycat recipe unless you use vegetable broth.

    • Jill

      Can I use vegetarian stock as I am a vegetarian and saw chicken stock so wanted to swap. Pls let me know as I’m dying to make this and hope it tastes just like the CPK version.
