Authentic Mexican Sopita (Sopa de Conchas)

If you’re looking for a comforting, easy-to-make soup that brings the flavors of Mexico right to your kitchen, look no further than Authentic Mexican Sopita, also known as Sopa de Conchas. This delightful dish features small shell pasta in a savory tomato broth, perfect for a light lunch or a cozy dinner.


  • 1 cup small shell pasta (conchas)
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1/2 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh cilantro, chopped (optional)
  • Lime wedges (optional)


  1. Toast the Pasta: Heat the vegetable oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the shell pasta and toast until it turns a golden brown, stirring frequently to avoid burning.
  2. Sauté the Aromatics: Add the chopped onion and minced garlic to the pot. Sauté for a few minutes until the onion becomes translucent and the garlic is fragrant.
  3. Prepare the Broth: Pour in the chicken broth and tomato sauce. Stir in the ground cumin, and season with salt and pepper to taste. Bring the mixture to a boil.
  4. Cook the Pasta: Once boiling, reduce the heat to a simmer and cook until the pasta is tender, about 10-12 minutes. Stir occasionally to prevent the pasta from sticking to the bottom of the pot.
  5. Serve: Ladle the soup into bowls. Garnish with fresh cilantro and a squeeze of lime juice, if desired, to enhance the flavors.


  • For a vegetarian version, substitute chicken broth with vegetable broth.
  • Feel free to add vegetables like carrots, zucchini, or peas for extra nutrition and flavor.
  • This soup pairs wonderfully with a side of warm tortillas or crusty bread.
