Ingredients You'll Need

4 ears fresh or 3 cups frozen, thawed corn kernels
2 medium tomatoes, roughly chopped
2 cups chicken broth
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
4 slices thick cut bacon
1/2 onion, chopped (about 1 cup)
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
Coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper

3 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
1/2 cup queso fresco, fresh farmer's cheese, feta cheese, or sour cream, optional

In a large saucepan over medium heat, cook bacon, turning once until brown and crisp, about 10 minutes.

Add onion to bacon fat in saucepan and cook, stirring frequently until onion is soft and translucent.


Add garlic and stir for another minute.
