The creamy corn soup has just the right amount of kick from added jalapeños. The chewy steak bits give it a punch of protein. This is an ideal pool party or barbecue appetizer!

Chilled Southwestern corn and steak soup recipe

Yields about 5 cups


  • 6 cups corn (about 8 ears)
  • 2-1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/2 jalapeño, de-seeded and chopped
  • 1/2 red pepper, chopped
  • 6 green onions, sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, diced
  • 1-1/2 cups light cream
  • 1-1/2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/2 pound skirt steak
  • Cilantro for garnish


  1. If using canned corn, remove from can and rinse. If you're using ears, remove the kernels from the cob. Place in a large container. Save about 1/2 cup kernels.
  2. Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the pepper, jalapeños, garlic and salt and pepper. Heat until soft and fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add the corn kernels, light cream, chicken broth and crushed red pepper. Bring the mixture to a simmer and cook until kernels are tender, but not mushy, about 15 minutes or so.
  3. Pour the mixture into a large blender. Blend in batches on low until pureed.
  4. Heat a grill over medium heat. Add steak and cook about 4 minutes on each side, or until medium rare. Cut into bite-size pieces.
  5. Pour soup into shooter glasses or small bowls. Chill until ready to serve. Garnish with remaining corn, scallions and steak bites.
