The Mexican Soup!

Serves 6 Prep Time 10 minutes   Cook Time 25 minutes   Rated:

I am a bit of a Mexican food addict, and I especially love the fresh flavours of Tex Mex, which is less Mex and more Tex. I first saw this idea years ago when I was visiting good friends in Houston and we had something similar to this but using hominy instead of corn. Hominy is a corn that has been treated and is a staple of South American cuisine. It is hard to get in Australia though it is available in tins online if you try hard enough.

I do find fresh corn is just as good, and if you char it first, even superior perhaps, though the hominy does have a very distinctive taste that is not anything like corn.

Whatever you end up with in this recipe you can add in LOADS of everything fresh to make it go a long way. It is essentially a broth, and then just fill her up with your favourite veggies. (The kids love it too!!)
