Crema de Maiz Colombiana

In the Andean zone of Colombia, corn is very popular and we use it in a lot of our recipes. This is a very easy to make ,rich and creamy Corn Soup recipe.

This Crema de Mazorca was one of my favorite soups as a kid. My mom used to serve it for lunch with white rice, avocado and grilled beef on the side.

Buen provecho

This corn soup sounds so delicious! The last time I had corn soup was last august in a restaurant in Georgia and actually my daughter ordered it (I had leftovers). I need to make it at home soon!

Made this tonight for my poor husband who just had oral surgery for his wisdom teeth and was starving. I pureed the heck out of the soup, and he loved it. Just added an extra garlic clove bc we’re garlic freaks. :) Great recipe!

Hello! Great flavor, but I made a mistake and used too much corn. The soup turned out too thick, but that was my fault. I will definitely prepare it again. Thank you.
