This soup is a derivative of the garlic soup served in Spain, but with no eggs, and a Mexican kick! Definitely a good choice to cure colds and on a winter night.

Directions

  1. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic, and cook until golden brown, about 4 minutes. Remove garlic with a slotted spoon and transfer to a large saucepan.
  2. Fry bread slices in the oil until golden on both sides. Remove and set aside. Add tomatoes and chile to the skillet and cook over high heat for several minutes until they begin to soften.
  3. Pour chicken stock, tomatoes and chiles into the large saucepan with the browned garlic. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 20 minutes. Season to taste with salt.
  4. To serve, place 2 or 3 toasted baguette slices in each bowl, then ladle the soup over them.

OMG, this was just what I needed on a cold day. It was lovely and quick to cook. I did add 1 T of sweet (not hot) paprika, 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper and 1/4 tsp cumin to shake it up a bit. Delicious!

Really nice when you have a cold. Not quite as good the next day, next time I will reduce to make less.

Excellent soup. I added cumin as did one other reviewer, but I add cumin to vanilla ice cream. Great recipe Lucero. Thanks for sharing.
