Why You'll Enjoy Sopita For Dinner

Sopita is a popular and simple Mexican soup recipe made using shell pasta, tomato sauce, and chicken broth. It is affordable, versatile, and so easy to make!


Toast the Pasta:  Heat the oil to a medium high heat. Then add the uncooked pasta.


Stir the pasta until it toasts and turns brown, making sure to not let it burn.


Boil the Pasta:  Once the pasta is toasted, add 4 ½ cups of water, tomato sauce, and chicken bouillon powder. Stir to combine.


Cover the pasta and bring the water to a boil. Then boil the pasta for about 10-12 minutes or until it is cooked all the way through.


Spoon the soup into a bowl, squeeze some fresh lime juice (optional) over the top, and enjoy!
