Sopa (Mexico)

Sopa is a traditional Mexican soup. It’s a common recipe in Mexico but everyone’s version is a little different.

Thank you to Ana Frias for her yummy version of sopa.

sopaIngredients

  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 (7 oz.) package of Mexican pasta. Shells, alphabets, or fideo (or vermicelli noodles, broken into 2″ pieces)
