INGREDIENTS

  • 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 red onion, finely chopped
  • 2 dehydrated or jarred chipotle chillies
  • 1 tsp ground cumin, toasted
  • 1 tsp ground coriander, toasted
  • 2 x 400g canned cherry tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 2 – 3 cups vegetable stock
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to season
  • 1 tsp red wine vinegar

Soup toppings:

  • Sour cream or crème fraiche, to serve
  • Corn tortilla chips, to serve
  • A handful of exotic tomatoes, sliced
  • ½ red onion, diced
  • 2 chillies, chopped
  • Fresh coriander, to garnish
  • Pink pickled onions, to garnish

METHOD

Pan fry the garlic and onion with the chipotle chillies and spices until softened. Add the canned cherry tomatoes and tomato paste then simmer for 5 minutes, before adding enough stock for the desired soup consistency. Simmer for 20 – 30 minutes, then season. At this point, the chipotle chillies can be removed.

Add a splash of red wine vinegar to taste. Depending on the desired consistency of the soup, it can be left as is with a little texture or blended for a smoother consistency.

Serve hot in Le Creuset 350ml mugs with all of the delicious Mexican-style toppings.
