Mexican Soup

Mexican Comfort Soup

Would you like to try a FREE Week of MealFit?

This is a great soup that is a little different than your normal Chicken Noodle or traditional Tomato soup.

If you ask my 7 year old daughter what her favorite meal is she will say “daddy’s Famous Soup”

This is not a Spicy dish at all. When people hear the word “Mexican” or “Hispanic” they automatically think Spicy. Not at all. Now you can add some cayenne pepper if you want to ramp up the heat.

Hope you enjoy this one. BTW this is going to be on our salad bar at MealFit salads.
