I had been searching for a Corn Bisque Soup recipe for several years and finally found one. My mother and I fell in love with this bisque! We both love the creamy texture and rich flavors in this soup, along with the fresh cilantro sprinkled on top with a squeeze of fresh lime makes it even more delicious. I really prefer the corn to be roasted first and it adds a little more depth of flavor to this soup, so I added that in along with a few other spices too. Original recipe from

    Using a slotted spoon, transfer the corn mixture to a blender. Add cream and 1/2 cup of the cooking liquid. Slightly vent the top of the blender and carefully puree until the mixture is smooth, about 2 minutes on puree speed or higher.
