Crema de Calabacitas a la Mexicana (Mexican Style Courgettes Cream)

Today’s recipe is a favourite of mine and my hubby! He usually doesn’t like courgettes Mexican style, which I love, but he likes soups, so I came with the amazing idea of doing create something that we both like and this is how this creamy soup came along! It is great for children as well, my two little pollitos love it very much and to let people know what they are eating, I garnish the soup with proper Mexican style courgettes and some yummy feta.

Today’s recipe is one of my old time yummy super mega favourite, birria! Yum!

I hope you like it. Continue reading “Birria de Res (Beef Birria)”
