Mexican Street Corn Soup

Mexican street corn is one of my absolute favorite foods ever!  If you've never had it it's corn on the cob that is spread with butter, cotija cheese, cilantro and a whole host of other toppings.  This soup mimics those same flavors and is the perfect crossover soup to, hopefully, bid farewell to Winter and welcome Spring.
