Also known as green corn soup, this soup has a unique and delicious flavor. Roasting the corn and garlic brings out wonderful layers of flavor and then combining them with our Salsa Verde results in a soup that is truly out of the ordinary.

Set the oven to 400°F. While the oven is heating, place the corn on one side of a rimmed baking sheet. Add 2 teaspoons oil and toss to coat. Place the garlic on the other side of the baking sheet. Add 1 teaspoon oil and toss to coat.
Roast the corn and the garlic for 30 minutes or until the corn has begun to brown and the garlic is golden brown and soft. Remove the garlic to a cutting board.
Heat the remaining oil in a 3-quart saucepan over medium heat. Add the pepper and cook for 5 minutes or until tender, stirring occasionally. While the pepper is cooking, mince the garlic.
Stir the corn, garlic, chicken, salsa verde and broth in the saucepan and heat to a boil. Reduce the heat to low. Cook for 5 minutes. Season to taste. Sprinkle with the cilantro. Serve with the sour cream, if desired.

I've added small pasta to this dish also to give it a bit more of a meal .. its such a great recipe I love it !!!
I am English and not a great cook however, I love Mexican food, so this was a real treat and fairly simple to prepare. I will most certainly make it again.
