Sopa Seca with Chorizo

8 / 10 7 / 10

After looking at our expenses the past couple months, I have (not so) quickly come to the realization that we need to massively change our spending habits. Being a one income family is starting to catch up with us. While most of our expenditures come from travel and eating out, I’m also going to make more of an effort to plan cheaper meals and meals that produce leftovers. We’ll see how it goes.

This recipe is one that I was able to make with stuff I had on-hand. Sopa Seca, or “dry soup” in Spanish, is actually not a soup at all, but rather a pasta casserole popular in Mexico and Peru. It is effectively a baked spaghetti with Mexican flavors and it was pretty delicious. It’s a fun and different way to make pasta, and something we will make again.
