We’re excited to announce that, as a result of our five months of travel throughout Mexico, we’ve developed and published a short e-cookbook featuring six Mexican soup recipes. Each recipe was developed here, on the road in Mexico, inspired by the locations we visited and the ingredients we found there.
From the onset, we decided that we’d only cook Mexican food while here in Mexico. Sure, it would have been easy to just eat what we’d normally eat (American and Cajun food, mainly), but we wanted to fully immerse ourselves in where we were. That meant not only preparing standards like tacos, quesadillas, and beans and rice, but also delving into the world of Mexican soups. Moreover, while in Mexico, we cooked the vast majority of our meals. This was mainly for budgetary reasons but it also provided the opportunity to hone our cooking skills and dig deep into the Mexican culinary world.
With this book, you can experience the variety and flavors of Mexican cuisine like we have. Most, if not all, of these ingredients can be readily found in American grocery stores. The recipes are loaded with standard ingredients like poblano peppers, tomatoes, onions, dried chiles, beef stew meat, rotisserie chicken, and tomatillos. These recipes are easy to prepare and store well in the fridge for leftovers.
The six recipes we’ve included are
• Beef Enchilada Soup—a tasty blend of ancho chiles, tortillas, and beef
• Carne Guisada—a Tejano classic; it’s beef stew with a chile-flavored twist
• Chicken Poblano Stew—a hearty dish that’s also loaded with corn and potatoes
• Sopa de Lima—the classic Yucatecan soup featuring chicken and lime
• Pozole Verde—the green version of this venerable classic with pork and tomatillos
• Sopa de Nopales—a citrusy-flavored cactus pad and chicharrónes soup
Each recipe includes detailed instructions and is scaled for either six or eight servings. We’ve also included a full color photo of a bowl of each soup and provided background and context for each recipe.
