Warm up with one of El Vaquero’s signature soups

Jack McLaughlin

While we’re facing down some of the last of this late-winter cold weather, we have the perfect way for you to stay warm and grab some great food while you’re at it.

El Vaquero’s location at 3230 Olentangy River Rd. still offers the same great slate of other Mexican entrees, but if you’re looking for a dish or two that’s particularly warming, the eatery has some of its own mouth-watering soup options perfect for a day like today.

The Azteca soup combines chicken broth, shredded chicken and tortilla strips, making for a rustically-delicious dish that doesn’t overcomplicate, because it doesn’t have to. With flavor from the chicken and chicken broth, the soup also adds a pleasant crunch from its generous addition of tortilla strips.

Additionally, El Vaquero’s northwest side eatery offers Pozole Soup. Also featuring chicken broth and shredded chicken, the Pozole then includes fresh pico de gallo and hominy, a traditional Mexican item made from dried kernels of maize.

Don’t just take out word for it, though. You can check out the Aztecs and a handful of the concept’s other offerings here.

And of course, you can always add to your order with any of the eatery’s quesadillas, tacos, chimichangas and even one of their signature riffs on the classic burrito, the Burrito Zacatecas, which features Mexican mashed potatoes, grilled spinach, tomatoes, onions, and cheese sauce to top things off.

A margarita or two to-go can help create a wonderful evening in as well, even if the snow keeps falling.
