I was glad I did, as it was very tasty and filling and has become a firm favourite in my house!
The soup is very simple to make and is almost a meal in itself. If you like your food to be extra spicy you can easily spice this up by adding some extra fresh chilli or dried chilli powder.
I hope you enjoy it!

- 1/2 teaspoon of cumin
- 1/2 teaspoon of ground coriander
- Fresh coriander to garnish
- Handful of long grain rice (optional)

Gluten Free Mexican Soup Method
Start by frying the onions, garlic, chorizo and chilli in some olive oil for 3-4 minutes. Then add the chopped carrots and peppers and continue to fry for a further 3-4 minutes. Remove the chorizo from the pot and set aside.
Next add the tin of tomatoes and the chilli poweder, cumin and coriander. While this is cooking boil the kettle and prepare 500ml of vegetable stock. Add this into the pot, bring to the boil and then allow to simmer for 20 minutes.
If you want a slighly chunky soup spoon out some of the pepper, onions and carrots and set aside. Take a hand held blender and blend the soup mixture until it is smooth then add the chorizo and the vegetables back into the pot.
Put the pot back on the hob and add a handful of uncooked rice and the beans. Simmer the gluten free Mexican soup for a further 15-20 minutes or until the rice is cooked.
Stir in some fresh corander leaves and then serve in bowls with some fresh coriander on the top.
