Author Notes: A 60-min start-to-finish vegetarian version of this classic Mexican soup will make anyone feel better in no time. And it IS actually "High In" Vitamin C - no joke!

Serves: 6

  • 2-3 pasilla chiles
  • 28 ounces fire-roasted tomatoes, diced
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 2 quarts vegetable stock, divided
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 white onion, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 6 tablespoons Mexican crema or sour cream
  • 3 tostadas or handful of tortilla chips
  • 2 avocados, sliced
  1. Cut open and remove the seeds and stem from the peppers. Toast for one minute on each side in a dry skillet over medium heat. Remove and coarsely chop.
  2. In a food processor, add chiles, tomatoes, garlic and 2 cups stock. Puree until smooth.
  3. In a soup pot, heat EVOO over medium-low heat. Add onion and sauté until golden, about 5 minutes. Add the puree along with the oregano and cumin. Reduce 10 minutes.
  4. Turn heat to medium and add the remaining stock. Bring to a boil, then turn back to medium-low to simmer 30 minutes.
  5. Divide the soup among the bowls and garnish with 1 Tbsp crema, broken tostadas and avocado slices.
