Sopa de Conchas
mexican shell soup
Made with shell pasta, known in Spanish as conchas or conchitas.
And with tasty, healthy, and delicious vegetables!
Make the "recaudo" by blending together fresh tomatoes, onions, and garlic.
Fry "conchitas" pasta in a medium stockpot. Then drain the excess of oil using a wire colander.
...don't forget to drain the oil!
Add first the tomato sauce, vegetables and cilantro or epazote. Pour chicken stock and bring to a boil.
Add fried pasta and cook everything until tender. It takes only from 8 to 10 minutes! Adjust salt to taste...
Serve with a squeeze of lime...yum!
