It’s a cold rainy day outside today, and I’m totally craving this spicy vegan tortilla soup. This is not your typical tex-mex, cumin and chili powder seasoned soup. The broth for this soup is simmered with epazote, chile morita, tomato, onion, garlic, and chipotle. It is then garnished with fried or baked tortilla strips, baked tofu, crispy chile pasilla, and avocado.

Tortilla soup is also known as sopa azteca, the soup is representative of central Mexico but can be found all over the country. It varies from state to state and household to household. Usually it consists of a tomato based  broth, a dried chile, and epazote. Fried tortillas are added to the broth then you pile the toppings on. Some other less traditional toppings are roasted poblano pepper, onion, and cilantro.

This is my Tia Laura’s recipe, and even though it is not necessarily the traditional one, it’s really good. I kept the recipe just as she showed me how to prepare it. She has a wonderful ease around the stove, and her callused hands show that she knows how to hold a knife, and does so often. She’s just one of those people with the “gift”. You know what I’m talking about right? She puts on that apron and forgets about the world, cutting, chopping, stirring, and tasting; she doesn’t even have to look at a recipe or resort to google. She makes it seem so effortless and fun. Which is the way home cooking should be.

Her love of food and cooking started in her mother’s kitchen, at the age of 5, while watching her bake polvorones (Mexican wedding cookies). It made her so sad that she couldn’t keep all the cookies to herself, that she asked her Mamá if she would show her how to make them, and she did. Now that my grandma no longer with us, my Tia has taken the unofficial title of family cook. I hope she doesn’t get mad at me for veganizing it! 

The Recipe: Spicy Vegan Tortilla Soup

  • If you can’t find fresh epazote use dried, or you can also use cilantro.
  • If you would like your soup to be spicy, add 2 chipotle chiles instead of one.
  • The tortillas and the chile pasilla are traditionally fried.
  • You want to add the tortillas to the soup right before eating.
  • You can substitute maggi seasoning sauce with soy sauce.
  • Zucchini would be a great addition to this soup.
  • Enjoy!!

Ingredients

  • 8 Corn tortillas cut into ½ in. strips
  • (12 oz.) or 1 block Extra firm tofu, pressed, cut into ½ inch cubes
  • 2 Roma tomatoes, large
  • ¼ White Onion, rough chopped
  • 1-2 Chile chipotle peppers in adobo
  • 1 Dried Chile morita, de-seeded, crumbled
  • 8 ½ cups Vegetable stock
  • 1 cup Diced tomates, canned, fire roasted
  • 2 Garlic cloves, peeled
  • 1 tsp. Soy sauce or braggs liquid aminos (see notes)
  • 1 sprig Epazote fresh

Garnish:

  • 2 Avocadoes, cut in half, pitted, diced
  • 3 Dried chile pasilla
  • Almond crema (optional)
  • 1 Lime, cut into quarters

Instructions

  • Pre-heat oven to 350°F.
  • Place the tofu and tortilla strips on a sheet tray lined with parchment paper. Bake for approximately 20 min. or until the tortillas are crispy and the tofu is slightly browned. Remove from oven and set aside.
  • In the meantime, bring water to a boil in a small pot and add whole tomatoes. Reduce heat and gently simmer for 3-4 min., or until tomatoes are soft and the skin begin to fall off them. Set tomatoes aside.
  • In a blender, puree cooked tomatoes, onion, chile morita, chipotle chiles, 2 ½ cups of HOT vegetable stock, tomato puree, garlic, and soy sauce until smooth.
  • Heat a large pot to medium heat and add the tomato-chile puree to it. Let it simmer for 1-2 minutes, until it slightly thickens and changes color. Add the rest of the vegetable stock, epazote spring, and baked tofu to the pot and bring to a simmer. Let simmer for 15 min. and season to taste.

Garnishes:

  • Toast the pasilla chile on a comal or saute pan set to medium heat, until crispy but not burnt. Cut into strips
  • Remove epazote sprig from pot, and serve soup in bowls.
  • Serve soup with assorted garnishes (baked tortilla strips, avocado, almond crema, toasted chile pasilla, and limes).

Notes

You can fry the tortilla strips for a crispier outcome, and traditionally the chile pasilla for the garnish is also fried in oil. I prefer my tortilla soup without the crema, but that’s up to you. If you can't find fresh epazote use dried, or you can also use cilantro. If you would like your soup to be spicy, add 2 chipotle chiles instead of one.

I have fallen in love with sweet potatoes. I actually used to dislike them, but during my pregnancy I craved them and now I can’t get enough of them. These sweet potato and carrot tinga tacos are one of the many ways you can use sweet potatoes. The shredded carrots and sweet potatoes are stewed with onion, garlic, and a tomato-chipotle sauce. The sweet potatoes make this dish just a bit sweet, the chipotle-tomato sauce adds a tanginess that will keep you coming back for more, and the avocado gives it a luscious creaminess. Serve on warm tortillas for tacos or on tostadas smothered with beans.

Traditionally, tinga is a shredded pork dish that originates from Puebla. It is also commonly made with chicken or beef. For another vegan option you could use jackfruit or hearts of palm. The best thing about this recipe though is that it’s super easy to make and only requires a couple of ingredients. I make a less spicy version for my kids and they love it!

Our baby is now 2 months old, and I’m trying to get back into the rythm of things, testing recipes, posting, and recording videos. I am planning on finally launching a youtube channel in the next couple of weeks, but I have to say it makes me really nervous. If you have any suggestions, words of encouragement, or recipe requests I am all ears. Enjoy!!

I am obsessed with this creamy chipotle pasta. The sauce is so easy to make and pretty amazing when you realize that a couple of almonds can make a beautiful cream sauce. The smokiness of the chipotle and the acidity of the lemon juice make it irresistible.

I am obsessed with this creamy chipotle pasta. The sauce is easy to make, vegan, and the whole thing takes less than 30 minutes to make.

The sauce contains only 6 ingredients almonds, water, almond milk, chipotle, garlic, and lemon juice. Simply place everything in your blender and process until smooth. If you do not have a high powered blender you can soak the almonds overnight. I use raw unpeeled almonds because I prefer their flavor, but if you want an extra creamy sauce you can use blanched almonds or cashews. The sauce shouldn’t be heated because it could break, so when your pasta is done simple toss it with the sauce in a bowl. There is no need heat the pasta and sauce again in pan.

The method for making this sauce was inspired by a sauce made in California called Bitchin’ Sauce. If you live in Cali, you should definitely check it out.

I perfected this recipe while I was living in Hawaii, but it a very homestyle Mexican recipe. The kind that moms and grandmas make at home to feed large crowds. This was one of my favorites before going vegan, so it was only natural that I made a vegan version of this. You can also make a version of this with poblano peppers.

The Recipe: Vegan Creamy Chipotle Pasta

  • The sauce is best used immediately.
  • You can use cashews instead of almonds if you prefer.
  • I also love pouring this sauce on top of my baked potatoes or as a sauce for my chiles rellenos.
  • If you do not have a high powered blender: Pour boiling water on top of almonds and let sit overnight.  Remove skins by pressing the almond between your fingers. The skin should pop off easily. Reduce the amount of water in the recipe to 1/4 cup, then add more if needed to adjust consistency.

Whenever I’m coming down with a cold, all I want is a caldo Tlalpeño. In this vegan caldo Tlalpeño recipe zucchini, potatoes carrots, and rice simmer in a chipotle vegetable broth. It is a comforting traditional home cooked meal.

Caldo Tlalpeño is one of my favorite comfort dishes. My mom, to this day, still makes a version of it whenever anyone one of us is sick. After moving to the U.S. I searched high and low for a restaurant that would serve a good caldo Tlalpeño, but none of them measured up. Until finally, duh, I realized that I should just make it at home. It is super easy to make and it’s another one of those dishes that kids love.

There’s a legend behind this special dish. It is said that Mexican president Santa Ana (you know, the one that signed away 1/4 of Mexico to the U.S.,) was very hung over after 3 nights of partying and was looking for a quick remedy. He happened to be in Tlalpan, the largest borough of Mexico City. The cook gave him a chicken soup and when the president asked what the name of the soup was, she said caldo Tlalpeño.

Homeschooling is going well so far. There has been a bit of whining and tears, but I already expected that. It’s actually kind of nice to not have to wake up at 6am and rush out the door to drop kids off at school. On the other hand, by 3 pm mommy is desperate for some alone time. Thank goodness for naps and TV!

I want to say a special thank you to all of you that took the time to respond to my email about the recipes you would like to see on the site. Apparently all of you really like chile rellenos and miss them terribly, so I will be working on that. If there’s any other dish you guys would like to see send me an email or respond to this post. I read every single one!

The Recipe: Vegan Caldo Tlalpeño

  • You can add whatever veggies you like. Chayote would also go really well with this.
  • When I make this for the kids I leave out the chipotle and add it as a condiment at the end for the adults.
  • Baked tofu would be a good addition to this soup as a garnish.

These vegan cauliflower tempura bites (cauliflower tortitas) in a tomato-chipotle sauce are one of my favorite lent side dishes. Traditionally the tortitas are dropped in an egg batter and fried, but for this version of the batter, I’ve essentially made an eggless tempura batter. The tomato-chipotle sauce gives this dish the acidity and spiciness that pairs very well with the crunchiness of the cauliflower

Every time lent and Easter comes around I get very homesick. Holy Week and Easter are a big deal in Mexico and our family has a set of traditions we practice every year. Every Friday in lent we enjoy comida de cuaresma(lent food) which includes things like tortitas de camaron, lentejas, caldo de mariscos, shrimp cocktails, capirotada, tortitas de coliflor, tortitas de papa, etc. I can’t get those things around here, or at least I haven’t found a place that serves traditional lent food, so I’ve adapted some of these dishes to be vegan.

One of the other traditions that we really enjoy and we can do here is Mexican confetti eggs. I’ve been saving my eggs since February and we’ve already started painting some. It’s so fun to watch the kids smash the eggs on each other’s heads and the colorful confetti jump out every where. Now all I have to do is find a family who will adopt us for Easter since the hubby is working. Sigh.

Picadillo is one of those dishes that is a staple in every Mexican household. It is super easy to make and kids tend to love it. It was one of my favorites growing up. In northern Mexico it is traditionally made with ground beef, onions, garlic, chiles, and potatoes. In southern and central Mexico they add raisins, olives, and even fruit. You can also find picadillo in other Latin American countries. Perhaps the most famous is the Cuban version, which consists of ground or shredded beef, onions, peppers, potatoes, olives, and capers.

I’ve been trying to find a way to make a delicious plant-based baked potato, one that has the creaminess of one slathered in butter and sour cream, or stuffed with broccoli and that fake yellow nacho cheese. Remember when Wendy’s used to sell broccoli and cheese baked potatoes? I used to love those! I was also a little chubby in those days. This creamy vegan chipotle sauce is so perfect to pour on top of your baked potato.

I tried stuffing the potato with veggies and then topping it with salsa, but I wasn’t satisfied. I found a recipe for a creamy vegan chipotle sauce that would work, but it was made with soy mayonnaise which just didn’t sound appetizing. I refuse to try vegan cheese, because frankly I think it’s disgusting and highly processed. It’s not the flavor so much as the texture, it’s like eating slightly melted plastic wrap tinted with food coloring. So no vegan cheese for me! I gave up on the whole baked potato thing for a while until I remembered bitchin’ sauce.

I didn’t set out to recreate Bitchn’ Sauce I just took the basic principle of the sauce. Who new water, almonds, oil, chipotle, and lemon juice blended together could make such a wonderfully creamy dairy-free sauce?

Yay! Success!!

I stuffed my baked potato with tri-colored quinoa and a sauté of kale, swiss chard, and mushrooms. Now that spring is here, and summer is fast approaching you can fill your potato with roasted summer squash, corn and tomato and top it off with the pinche sauce. You can also try it as a sauce for pasta, to dip your chips in, or drizzled on those quinoa bowls that are so popular with vegans.
