Ingredients:

  • 3 cups of sweet corn (kernals)
  • 3 potatoes diced

Directions:

  1. Melt your butter in a deep pan.
  2. Add in all of your vegetables in the pan to “fry”.
  3. Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon of Masa.
  4. While those are cooking, put your Chipotle Peppers and broth in a large Crock-Pot, turn on low.
  5. When your corn mix is looking like it’s starting to fry scoop out 2 cups of the mix and put it in your Crock-Pot.
  6. Using a hand blender, puree the items in the Crock-Pot.
  7. Add in your remaining Masa, milk & water and continue to puree.
  8. Fold in your yogurt in the Crock-Pot mixture.
  9. Add the the remaining fried corn, potatoes, onion mix from the pan into the Crock-Pot.
