This Alphabet Soup is really easy to prepare and is loved by everyone, young and old. I know it is a particular favorite with children since they like to play with their imagination and form words with all those letters floating in the bowl!
Chop the tomato, onion, and garlic and place in your blender or food processor with one cup of the chicken broth. Process until the ingredients form a smooth sauce, then set aside.
Heat oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the alphabet soup pasta and fry until slightly brown (stir often to avoid burning the pasta). This step will take about 2 minutes.
Pour the tomato sauce using a strainer, bring to a boil, and cook for 4-5 minutes.
Add the rest of the chicken broth, season with salt, place lid on the pot, and simmer for 8-10 more minutes. Check pasta for doneness (this pasta cooks really quick). Remove promptly from the heat to avoid overcooking.
Serve immediately. Enjoy!
Homemade chicken broth can be substituted for store-bought chicken broth or chicken bouillon mixed with water.
Some cooks like to add a sprig of cilantro to the soup while it is simmering the Alphabet soup (Sopa de Letras).
