There are several soups in the Costa Rican cuisine category which are quite popular in the region. Bacalao (Cod soup) is a favorite among many locals in the region. Other soups are: the Bean Soup, Modongo, which is a beef stomach soup, Olla de Carne (Costa Rican traditional beef soup), Sopa de Albondigas (Meatball soup), Sopas de Leche (Tortilla Soup) and the infamous Sopa de Pescado (fish soup). The Costa Rican soups are made with a lot of tact and yet they are extremely easy to prepare. They are delicious and sometimes can prove to be great appetizers as well. The Costa Rican soups use mostly meat in them rather than vegetables, and that is of no surprise as Costa Rica is known to be the ‘beef country’. Nevertheless, the Costa Rican soups are great to have before the main course meal and add a unique blend of fine delicacy to your entire Costa Rican meal.
