1/2 c Butter
1/2 c Butter; for the tomatoes
2 cubes chicken flavor
Jalapeno peppers; or poblano
1 c Fresh maize grains

Original recipe makes 6



*Pumpkin Flowers need to be washed and prepared just cutting the flower and a little shot in cubes. Put one of the 1/2 cup butter in a pan and add the maize grains, add the zuccini and the flowers, fry in the butter just until the vegetables make stock, add the epazote and salt. A while in a sauce pan put the other 1/2 cup of butter, add the onion chopped (or better if made a pure too) let the butter apears on top, add the red tomatoes pure. cook until seasoning, adding salt and pepper and chicken cubes. Be careful with the salt. When the red sauce is ready add to the soup and add 3 cups of water, add the chiles cutted in pieces, if you use poblanos instead of jalapenos you will need to peel them before as usual. Let cook until the vegetables are soft and just two minutes before serve add the cream, with cream the soup dont have to boil. Recipe from: Miguel Angel Castillo.

Hey, I am trying to make this soup but unfortunately I haven't found the pumpking flowers. I alredy went to Central Market, WalMart and Fiesta but nothing. Do you have any idea of where can I find them? I am located in Irving, Tx.

very nice, had good comments from all, and made sout on two occasions so far. At the time I did not have jalapeno peppers, so I used chili pepper (1 teaspoon)
