Chileatole - Green Chile Soup With Corn (Slow Cooker)

“From "The Mexican Slow Cooker" by Deborah Schneider. So many recipes in this book look so appealing. I have not made this one yet, but it contains so many ingredients I love. The author first tasted this soup at the Xochimilco market south of Mexico City.”
