Inspired by elote, a popular street food in Mexico, this creamy, hearty chowder is an excellent way to use up leftover grilled corn. Even the cobs are added to the soup for an extra boost of sweetness and depth of flavor. Crema and cotija cheese from brands such as Cacique and Suprema are increasingly available at supermarkets but can otherwise be found at Mexican grocery stores.
