Chef Tips

  • Always wash all fruits & vegetables and cut on a board that is not used for meats, fish or poultry

    For a creamier soup: substitute the stock in step #8 with ¼ cup of low-fat evaporated milk and use the stock for step 9

    For extra taste and garnish: top an individual serving of soup with crunchy tortilla strips and/or chili powder

  • Cut this recipe in half to save money.
