Green Enchilada Soup

Nothing is better than the spiciness of Mexican food. The combination of the different spices can be as fiery hot or as mild as you want. The green enchilada sauce that we use is bottled, it’s made with tomatillos plus green chillis and a mix of onions and spices and has a delicious tomato and lime flavour to it.
