This flavoursome bowl is our hearty take on a Mexican classic – tortilla soup! The best part of this winter warmer is the DIY chips. Enjoy the moreish baked tortillas as a crisp topping, or submerge them in the soup to soak up all the rich, spiced tomato flavour.

Preheat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan-forced. Thinly slice the brown onion. Cut the zucchini into 1cm pieces. Finely chop the garlic (or use a garlic press). Drain and rinse the red kidney beans.

SPICY! Add 1/2 the spice blend if you are sensitive to heat! In a medium saucepan, heat a drizzle of olive oil over a medium-high heat. Add the onion and zucchini and cook, stirring, until softened, 5 minutes. Add the garlic and Mexican Fiesta spice blend and cook until fragrant, 1-2 minutes.

Add the diced tomatoes and water to the pan and crumble in the vegetable stock (1 cube for 2 people / 2 cubes for 4 people). Add the red kidney beans and simmer, uncovered, until reduced and thickened, 10 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper. TIP: Seasoning is key in this dish, so taste, season with salt and pepper and taste again.


While the soup is simmering, slice the mini flour tortillas into 1cm-thick strips and arrange over an oven tray lined with baking paper. TIP: For the low-calorie option, serve with 1/2 the tortilla strips. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Transfer to the oven and bake until golden and crisp, 6-8 minutes.

Cut the avocado into 2cm chunks. TIP Cut the avocado into cubes while the flesh is still in the skin, then scoop the flesh out with a spoon. Roughly chop the coriander. Slice the lime into wedges.
