Mexican soup recipes

Soups are one of the favorite dishes in all seasons but in winter, they tend to be the favorite and most popular. So to help you to have variety, we give these Mexican soup recipes that are a delight as well as nutritious and easy to prepare. If there are any ingredients you can’t find in the town where you live, you can substitute it.

Corn tortilla Soup


  • 15 corn tortillas
  • 3 ripe tomatoes
  • ½ medium white onion
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 2 sprigs of epazote
  • 6 cups of chicken broth
  • 3 dried red peppers
  • 5 ounces of diced cheese
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • Corn oil, leftover from frying the tortillas
  • Salt, white pepper and seasoning to taste


  1. Cut the tortillas into strips and fry in corn oil (or sunflower, because it is less strong than olive oil) until golden brown.
  2. Lightly toast one of the dried peppers in a skillet pan over low heat. Remove from heat, scrape seeds, and put to soak in warm water for 15 minutes.
  3. Put in the blender a little water, soaked pepper, tomato, garlic and onion and grind. In a casserole, we put a tablespoon of oil and when it’s hot, add the mixture of the blender, previously strained for the sauce to get smooth.
  4. Add the epazote and let cook a little more.
  5. When the tomato changes color, about 10 minutes, add the chicken broth and season to taste with salt, white pepper and bouillon powder.
  6. Let the broth simmer for about 15 minutes and meanwhile, fry in oil the other two peppers cut like earrings (with scissors will be very easy) trying to remove the seeds. When they get brown, remove them from the oil and drain on paper towels.
  7. Garnish each plate with the earrings of peppers, avocado cubes and brown sugar.

NOTES: The herb epazote is a typical in Mexican cuisine, it has a strong and hard to describe flavor, with an aroma that can be equated with lemon, salt or mint. It could be replaced with cilantro, if not found, but the taste is quite different.

  • 1 tomato

  2. Add a pinch of black pepper and broth or 2 cups of water. When it boils, add the flowers, cover about 5 minutes and off.

  • 3 ripe tomatoes
  • 1 / 2 onion
  • 6 long peppers
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 sprig of epazote
  • 1 liter of broth
  • Salt to taste


  1. Obtain a cream by processing tomatoes, garlic and onion. In a skillet add about 400 grams of butter, add corn kernels when the butter is hot and fry until they turn transparent.

  • 1 fresh jalapeno pepper

Every culture around the world has amazing creations and specialties on certain kinds of foods. And I have to say, some of the Mexican soups I've had have been the tastiest soups ever! I'm super glad I found this recipe, because when you're cooking don't need to include corn and tortillas and rice.

I love Mexican food! But soups aren?t my favorite food but maybe I would like them if they have the traditional Mexican taste! So I?m going to try one of these recipes and see if I like it! I?m going to invite my boyfriend too because he loves trying new things and recipes! Thanks by the way!
