Crema de Mazorca or Choclo is a simple and delicious Colombian creamy corn soup. This soup is comforting and full of flavor. This soup recipe is easy to make and it doesn't required a lot of ingredients.
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.

Great site! I love soup, and this looks like a very Spring/Summer recipe.
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!
Thank you very much for the feedback and I am glad you the soup.
I am making this soup now. It looks delicious.
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.

HI Erica, the soup looks delicious! I have a new Colombian friend here locally. She is trying to entice her Indian boyfriend who loves curry and spice to enjoy Colombian food. I know I have been enjoying her food! I asked if she knew about your web site and she does!
Hope all is well and you are enjoying your summer.
Just wanted to share that I made this soup as part of my final at the culinary school I'm attending. Final grade is an A.

I tried posting a picture but not able to do so. Thank you for posting these recipes. Delicious!
My boyfriend loves this soup. I'm making it for his birthday today, in fact. I stir in a handful or two of shredded Monterey Jack/Cheddar at the end and this really brings together all of the wonderful flavors. Then we add hot sauce to taste in our bowls. Thank you for the easy and delicious recipe!
Could I substitute evaporated milk for the heavy cream?
