Spicy Mexican Zucchini Soup


Here's another delicious way to use fresh zucchini, the Spicy Mexican Zucchini Soup. This Mexican dish is creamy, cheesy, and loaded with veggies. This soup is warming and filling, you will go back for bowl after bowl.


One of my favorite soups is this fragrant Mexican zucchini soup with an incredible texture, which makes it the perfect comfort soup for any season.



What's in the Spicy Mexican Zucchini Soup

Zucchini - cut into cubes
Corn kernel - Fresh, or frozen
Onion - I use white onion, diced
Jalapeños - seeded, and finely diced
Cheese - I prefer Monterey Jack cheese, but Mexican Blend can be used.
Green Chile - Store-bought can green chile, or fresh Anaheim chile roasted, peeled and diced








Grab your favorite loaf of chewy bread or warm tortillas and enjoy!
