2 medium ears of corn (shucked)

4 pounds beefsteak tomatoes (cored and coarsely chopped)

1½ cups fresh orange juice

1 tablespoon fresh lime juice

1½ teaspoons pure ancho chile powder

1 teaspoon pure new mexico chile powder

1 tablespoon grenadine syrup


10 oil-cured black olives


1. Bring a large saucepan of salted water to a boil. Add the corn and cook until crisp-tender, about 4 minutes. Drain and let cool. Cut the kernels from the cobs.

2. Meanwhile, in a food processor, puree the tomatoes until smooth. Pass the tomatoes through a food mill or a fine sieve set over a large bowl; you should have about 7 cups of juice. Stir in the orange juice, lime juice, chile powders and the grenadine and season with salt. Refrigerate until chilled, about 10 minutes.

3. Ladle the chilled soup into cups. Garnish with the olive slices and corn kernels and serve.

Bon Appetit!
