Mexican Chicken and Corn Soup

I’m not happy my friends… it’s hot again here in Houston, and that’s just not allowed during “Soup Season.” It’s actually been raining ALLLLL day long, and you’d think with rain, it would at least cool down a bit. Unfortunately, that’s not the case. Instead, we just have warm, muggy, humid rainy days and it’s just not cool in my books.

It’s not going to keep me from making soups though. In fact, I have White Chicken Chili started right now in the kitchen. :) I’m just keeping my fingers crossed that the cooler weather comes back and I can continue on making soups as well as hot cocoa (it hasn’t been cold enough to do that just yet). While we wait for the cooler weather here in Texas, I thought I’d share one last soup for you this week. It’s called Mexican Chicken and Corn Soup.

Super hearty and delicious Mexican Chicken and Corn Soup { }

It tastes like a Mexican Casserole of sorts, and is definitely a keeper recipe!

    Looks delicious! We just moved here to Houston. I am wondering the same thing! Thankfully the past couple of days have been cooler & I cannot express how wonderful it is. Enjoy the cooler weather.

    I’m curious how many servings? And if this makes quite a bit have you ever frozen half for another meal? I really want to make this but with a family of 3 and a half I don’t want to eat leftovers for a week LOL, and I really don’t want to cut recipe in half if I can freeze it, because for my no cook Tuesday’s this would be perfect to pull out and thaw and re-heat during the winter.

    Looks great! One question…The recipe calls for 3-4 CUPS of corn. Is that the correct amount? It seems like a lot to me. I will still make it regardless 😉

    I don’t often enough comment on recipes I find online, but I had to thank you for this recipe and say how much my family enjoyed it! I did use half the salt and half the cayenne which made it just the perfect amount of heat for us. I also added a few shakes of dried cilantro. Otherwise I followed the recipe as is. Even my 6 year old drank the leftover broth from his bowl and expressed how much he loved the soup! I will definitely be keeping this recipe and making it often! Thank you!
