Mexican comfort food. There’s nothing better! When my family gathers around the table for dinner, I love sharing warm, delicious meals that I know will bring a smile to everyone’s faces. This zucchini soup or Sopa de Calabacitas is one of those dishes. Based on the flavors of the traditional dish of Calabacitas with all of its creamy and cheesy goodness, this soup is a simple alternative for any day of the week.

In this soup recipe, the zucchini flavor comes through nicely as it mixes and mingles with Cacique Crema Mexicana, Cacique Queso Quesadilla, chicken broth, tomatoes, and sweet kernels of corn. The difference from regular calabacitas is the use of Cacique Longaniza Chorizo that tops off the dish, bringing some desired heat and smoky flavor. Cacique’s new Cured Pork Longaniza is a premium Mexican style pork sausage made from a lean cut of pork shoulder packaged in a natural casing. It crumbles nicely and works well as a topping for this soup.
