Preparation

To prepare soup:
1. Toast cumin in a small skillet over low heat, stirring, until just fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes.
2. Combine tomatoes, onion, 2 tablespoons cilantro and chipotle in a blender or food processor. Puree until smooth. Transfer to a large bowl. Add the toasted cumin, corn, ice water, lime juice and salt; stir to combine. Refrigerate until chilled, about 1 hour or until ready to serve.

To prepare cilantro yogurt:
3. Puree yogurt and the remaining 1/4 cup cilantro in a blender or food processor until smooth. Refrigerate until ready to serve (it will thicken slightly as it stands).
4. To serve, divide the soup among 4 bowls and garnish each with a generous swirl of cilantro yogurt.
