Dry Soup

Dry soup is not the same as wet soup around here. In fact, it is not soup. People refer to sopa seca (dry) versus sopa aguada  (watery), although I think that saying sopa con caldo (broth) sounds more savory for the latter.

Dry soup commonly refers to rice deliciously prepared a la mexicana, with tomato, onions, garlic and bits of vegetables.

So if someone asks you if you would like sopa seca, say "yes"...unless, of course, you are in a restaurant and trying to order what you think of, by definition, as soup.

Come live here.

Thanks for clearing that up for me. I thought it just referred to the soup mix before you add the water.

Soooo, I guess sopa seca is pretty much the same thing as what we call Spanish rice. Sounds good, now I'm hungry for some.
