While Taco Tuesday might bring other Old El Paso foods to the table, it is time to break out the soup bowl for the brand’s latest offering. The five new Old El Paso Soups amplify the flavor in that classic comfort food.

For many people, a bowl of soup can make the day feel better. Whether it is warmth felt while cradling the bowl or the aroma wafting in the air, that spoonful of deliciousness can instantly bring a smile to people’s faces.

Although grandma might have spent hours building layer upon layer of flavor in a homemade soup, the reality is that few people have the time or patience to make that dish from scratch. The idea of being able to pour and heat that food whenever the craving hits is preferable.

The new Old El Paso Soups lean into classic Mexican flavors while still being approachable to a wide audience. The flavors are Chipotle Corn Chowder Soup, Chicken Cheese Enchilada-Style Soup, Chicken Tortilla Soup, Mexican-Style Chicken & Rice Soup and Jalapeño Chicken Noodle Soup.

Looking the list, the Chipotle Corn Chowder Soup is the unique offering that might quickly become the must try. The combination of a slightly sweet corn with the smoky chipotle will offer a lovely balance of flavor.

To add some additional texture to the bowl, consider some blue corn tortilla strips as a topping. Not only will the blue corn tortilla strips add color, but the slightly earthier flavor will also contrast the sweet and spice in the soup. It is a take on the swicy food trend that is guaranteed to be a hit.

The other soup options take familiar soup choices and add an Old El Paso twist. Given that food trends show that consumers are wanting bolder, spicier flavors, it makes sense that the food brand is branching out into the soup category.

Although the five flavors cover a wide spectrum, it is interesting that Old El Paso did not offer a type of posole. Even though that soup can be very particular to a family’s recipe or a region, it is a dish that some people find hard to master but they love the flavor. Maybe for the next round of soup offerings, Old El Paso will add it.

Whether the new soups are enjoyed on their own or paired with some tacos, it is time to grab a few cans to keep in the house. Sometimes a bowl of soup can make that day feel a little fuller.

Old El Paso soups are available exclusively at Walmart. The suggested retail price is $4.32.
