2 cups frozen corn kernels, divided

3 (4-ounce) cans diced green chiles, divided (recommended: Ortega)

4 cups chicken stock

1 teaspoon Mexican seasoning

2 tablespoons butter

1 (8-ounce) package sliced fresh mushrooms

3/4 cup Mexican crema (recommended: Caciqus)

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Fresh cilantro leaves, chopped, for garnish

Crumbled cotija cheese, for garnish


  1. In a medium pot over medium-high heat, combine onions, garlic, 1 cup corn kernels, 2 cans of the chiles, chicken stock, and Mexican seasoning. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes.
