  • 2 Hatch chiles, seeded and chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 1 Tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1 Teaspoon ground cumin
  • 16 Ounces frozen corn kernels

In a large saucepan sauté the onions and chiles in the butter. Stir in the flour and cumin. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly for a minute or two. Add the corn and chicken stock, and bring to a simmer.

While the soup is simmering, mix the milk and cream cheese in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 2 minutes, stirring every few minutes, until the cheese has softened.
