I’ve got so much Texas in me, it’s overflowing into my soup! Seriously though, last week, the hubby and me were feeling a little under the weather but well enough to eat a bit of something (I mean, puh-lease).  I tried my hand at an egg drop soup for the first time and it was fantastically easy and tasty – considering I added some of the flavors we love right here in the Lone Star and topped it with chopped avocado! This Tex-Mex Egg Drop Soup is the cure for WHATEVER ails you — even if it’s just hunger! Tex Mex Egg Drop Soup

I think you’ll love the new zesty attitude of a traditionally mild-mannered soup.  You can spice it up or down with your preferred amount of chipotle chile powder.  It’s the new thing in Texas comfort food (because I say so)!Tex Mex Egg Drop Soup is kicked up with Lone Star state flavors -- add chopped avocado on top for a light lunch or dinner.One thing to really dig about this soup is that it only takes 10 to 15 minutes to make, start to finish, and requires only four base ingredients, excluding any toppings you desire. I’ve relied on Instantly Fresh Guacamole Blend of herbs and spices (from Litehouse Foods) to keep it speedy and add a yee-haw helping of south-of-the-border flavor without having to buy (and potentially waste) a big pile of produce. You get the just-like-fresh flavors of garlic, cilantro, pepper, cilantro and more straight from a jar that can be stored in your pantry until needed! Seriously, this dehydrated herb blend is THE BEST new product I’ve seen in a while – you should be able to find it in the produce department or spices aisle. Litehouse Guacamole YUM 1

Some tips on the Tex-Mex Egg Drop Soup:

  • You can omit the corn starch, but using this thickener helps give body and a silky texture to the soup while also keeping eggs from clumping.
  • If you want to increase the serving capacity, add 1 additional cup of broth, 1 egg and 1 teaspoon of Instantly Fresh Guacamole Blend per serving.
  • Pour the whisked eggs slowly into the broth, stirring continuously. Don’t just dump them in and run!
  • This soup is best served immediately after preparation.
  • If you can’t find Instantly Fresh Guacamole Blend, substitute 1 tablespoon dehydrated chopped onions, ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes, ½ teaspoon cumin, ½ teaspoon garlic powder.
