Ingredients

Serves Tool

Serves To:USMetric
5 Clove(clv)  garlic, chopped
4 Tablespoon(T)  butter
4   medium zucchinis
6   epazote leaves, stems removed
2 Quart(q)  whole milk
1/2 Teaspoon(t)  black pepper, freshly ground
4   fresh poblano chilies, cut into strips
1   avocado, peeled and cut into wedges, for garnish
1 Pinch(pn)  sea salt, to taste
5   crispy tortillas, cut into
4 Cup(c)  fresh corn kernels
2   medium white onions, chopped

Preparation

Divide the corn in half.  In a medium sized skillet, saute the onions and garlic in the butter until slightly translucent.  Add half of the corn, zucchini, and most of the epazote, reserving a pinch to use later.  Stir.  Puree the corn mixture in a blender or food processor until it is velvety smooth.  (If parts of the corn kernels are still chunky, mash the blended squash and corn through a fine meshed sieve, using the back of a spoon to press out all the liquid.)  Put it all together in a large pot.  Stir in the remainder of the whole corn kernels, milk, salt and pepper to taste.  Bring to a boil, then lower the heat.  Continue to simmer for 30 minutes.  Add the remainder of the epazote during the last 5 minutes.  To serve, place a handful of tortilla strips and a few strips of chile in each warmed bowl.  Ladle the hot soup over them and garnish with the rest of the chile strips and the avocado.

Additional notes

Note:  Butter is important to the taste of this soup, but if for health reasons you must omit it, substitute a good quality corn oil.  Thyme can be substituted for the epazote, but the flavor will be quite different.
