Hatch Chile Soup with Fresh Summer Corn #NMTrueFlavors -

This soup can easily be served without the shrimp or substitute shredded chicken if you prefer. The fresh summer corn is a must, however!

Ingredients

  • 1 pound shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil (plus a little extra for cooking shrimp)
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 large white onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 16 ounce package Young Guns Medium Flame-Roasted Diced Hatch Chiles (or two cups roasted hatch chiles, diced - heat will depend on the peppers!)
