1 cup corn muffin mix
2 Tbsp butter
1 small onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp cumin

Mix together milk and muffin mix until combined; set aside. Heat butter in a large pot over medium heat until foaming. Add onion and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in garlic, cumin, and oregano. Cook and stir until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add chicken broth, chicken, and sweet potatoes. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until potatoes are tender, about 8 minutes. Stir in milk mixture and simmer for 10 minutes or until soup starts to thicken. Add cheese and corn.
