To celebrate I am cooking my favorite Tortilla Soup. Here’s my recipe.

  • 1 cup cooked chopped chickenSnipit Goya black beans
  • 12 fresh tomatilla, steamed or boiled soft and mashed.
  • 1 onion, cooked soft, mashed with tomatilla.
  • 1 cup fresh-off-the cob corn or 1 can corn, drained.
  • 1 can Goya black beans, drained.
  • 4 or 5 cups chicken broth. (Best made with chicken feet). Otherwise, 1 quart of chicken broth.
  • 1 packet Goya Vegetable seasoning.
  • Juice of small lime.
  • ½ cup heavy cream or milk.

Snipit goya Vegetable SeasoningPut all except cream in a four quart pot. Bring to a boil. Stir well. Season with salt and garlic powder to taste.  Remove from heat and stir in cream. Keep warm on very low heat. Garnish with Cilantro. Serve with tortilla chips.  Now,  you can add other ingredients. Le gusta yuca mucho.  I am spoiled by the fresh yuca I could dig in my yard in el Cacao…but here in the States, I buy Goya frozen Yuca. I add yuca to my tomatilla soup. You may have to add a little water or more chicken broth. Up to you.  Enjoy!

    The soup looks really good and I’m pretty sure it would be easy enough to make it vegetarian.
    Really excited to see how your Spanish translation does. Congrats!

  4. Mary Smith says:

    Well done, Jackie, on the Spanish translation. I’m sending the link to a friend who lives in Spain. He teaches Spanish to English people so maybe he could use the book in his lessons!

    The recipe sounds good.

    Love the covers and I’m sure Spanish readers around the world will fall in love with the story.

    (Not sure we get tomatilla in the Isle of Wight but I have discovered an online Mexican grocer in the UK…)

      Hola, Rosie! If you see a can of salsa verde, green sauce, start with that. Tomatillas are little green tomatoes. If you get green tomatoes out of your garden in the spring…
