"I fell in love with this soup in Mexico. I used to export my own cans of it (yes, Campbell's sells it in Mexico) ... so I had to get the recipe for myself, especially since I am growing pumpkins and have tons of flowers in my garden! Also I plan to can it. If Campbell's can, so can I! You can substitute other squash flowers; if you don't have epazote, tarragon is a good substitute.

It so delicious! Thanks for the recipe! I use to have it all the time in Mexico and forgot how to make it!... Everyone should try it and you would love it! ; )
Loved it!!! My husband and 22 month old loved this recipe. I wanted to use up the pumpkin flowers I had in our garden, but I did not want to fry them--like so many other recipes call for. I found this recipe, and followed it exactly...although I did put in more pumpkin blossoms. We ate it up. The next day we put the leftovers over white rice as a sauce, and it was delicious. Thanks....it was a lot of work, but I will make this again.
I used butternut squash instead of zuchinni,forgot to add the corn,used a pasilla instead of a pablano and evaporated milk for the heavy cream.Been wanting to try this since "A walk in the clouds".Very tasty !
