Sopa de letras

Sopa de letras is a delicious and hearty homemade Mexican alphabet soup. It’s one of my favorite soup recipes!

Let’s get started!

- alphabet pasta  - broth - bouillon - onion - tomatoes - olive - garlic - salt 

Ingredients Needed

I used chicken broth for this recipe, but you can substitute vegetable or beef broth.

*Quick Tip!*

Make the tomato base by adding broth, tomatoes, onion, bouillon, garlic, and salt to a blender. Blend until smooth. 


In a medium pot add oil and pasta. Stir to coat evenly with the oil and toast for 4 minutes until golden brown. 


Pour in the tomato base and cook for 3 minutes. Stir in the remaining broth, increase heat to high, and bring to a boil. 


Reduce heat to low and cook for 10 more minutes. Taste and adjust salt if necessary.
