2 tbs olive oil
2 slices bacon, chopped
10-12 tomatillos, husks removed, blend to fine in food processor

1 jalapeno seeded and chopped
2 cloves garlic, peeled
6 cups chicken stock
Juice of one lime
Salt and pepper to taste

Tortilla chips

In a large pot, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add bacon and saute until crisp. Add onion, grate (or chop) garlic into the pot, and jalapeno. stir and cook for 5 minutes or until onion is slightly softened. Add frozen corn and cook for 5 more minutes.
