Video Blog: El Gringo Soup

Hola! Today i am going to show you how to make a tasty Mexican style soup called the El Gringo Soup. This recipe uses beautiful fresh raw veggies and delicious traditional Mexican flavours for seasoning.

If you prefer your soup to have some texture, try adding some sweet corn at the end or some mixed beans and then serve with a side of corn chips … velado!

If your planning a little a Mexican Fiesta for your friends you may even want to start with a delicious home made Guacamole and Salsa to serve as guests are arriving. Dish up this delicious El Gringo Soup as starter and then try our tasty Cucumber Burritos and our Raw Tortilla Wraps as a main. You can top it all off with our decadent Chocolate Fondue and add a hint of Chili to give it a little something different … Ole!
