To start you need to cook bacon and crumble. Chop cooked lean ham. Grate cheese. Make or buy salsa verde or tomatillos salsa. Also place corn in food processor and pulse a few times to break it down a little.
Start warming broth and salsa verde. Add crumbled bacon, chopped ham and corn. In a small skillet or sauce pan heat bacon grease, add four to make a thick paste. Now stir in can milk and continue stirring with a whisk to remove all lumps. Add to soup pot and stir in well. Simmer for about 30 min. stirring often. Add granulated garlic, thyme, black pepper and salt to taste.
Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly. Add grated cheese and stir till melted if cheese becomes a little stringy, add a couple squeezes of lemon juice.
