Although we learned to make this soup in San Miguel D’Allende, this simple “sopa” originated in the Mexican state of Michoacan. Marilau’s Mexican Ancestry Cooking School in San Miguel adheres to a long tradition and history of authentic Mexican cuisine. Marilau is passionate about using only techniques and ingredients that are indigenous to her culture and inherited from her family.
Soups and “salsas” or sauces are thickened and flavored with a variety of chiles, nuts and seeds. Wheat and flour are not part of the authentic Mexican cooking experience. Tomatoes, onions, corn, chiles, nuts and seeds (pumpkin, peanuts, pecans, almonds) fruit, cinnamon, vanilla, oregano and cumin are used as a foundation and as part of the layering of complex flavors and textures. Every bite is a surprise and bursting with flavor. Discover authentic Mexican cuisine with this simple and tasty recipe.
