Creamy Chicken Macaroni Soup

Macaroni Sopas

A comforting one pot wonder that fills you up and cuddle you from the inside.. It’s creamy, filling and soupy just perfect for rainy days.

I asked the my daughters what they would like to eat for dinner. It’s been a rainy autumn we are having this year. Both of the girls thought about it, “Mama what’s that soup with pasta and spam that you make” they asked. I had to think about it a little. “Is it Macaroni Sopas?” I said.

Sadly I don’t have any stories with my dad with this dish but I guess my food stories continues with my two daughters who loves watching me cook and eating my food.

What is Sopas?

Sopas literally means Soup and Filipinos inherited the name from Spain during when they colonised Philippines. We are unsure where the recipe comes from but we made it our own. Sopas is usually cooked with macaroni, vegetables and meat (usually chicken). Evaporated milk is added to make the soup nice and creamy. Trust me it works!

What ingredients do I need to make Macaroni Sopas?

Most of the ingredients are easily accessible in your local grocery shop. This one great thing about Filipino food, most ingredients are either easily accessible or there many alternative ingredients you can get from your local supermarket. There are some exotic ingredients that you can only get from a Filipino grocery store.

If your local grocery shop doesn’t have any macaroni you can use any pasta you like, make it fun for the kids and buy ribbon pasta or other shapes pasta. Not celery fan? Use another root vegetable or add some cabbage to your sopas instead, you can even add some peas or corn. My girls loves it when I mix things up a little too.

Spam or Hot dog? Well you can both if you like and if you can’t find those (Filipino) red hot dogs, Frankfurters are also very tasty with it. I personally prefers using Spam as it adds a depth of flavours into the soup. Not a fam of evaporated milk? Use normal whole milk or some cream.

I hope you enjoy this dish like we did! Please rate my recipe if you like it and do comment if you have any questions. It would make my day if you tag me on Instagram @foodwithmae on your Sopas photos or videos. Thank you! Maraming Salamat!

Ingredients

500g chicken wings
2-3 litres water
1 large onion, roughly chopped
4 garlic, crushed
200g celery, chopped
200g carrots, peeled & chopped
200-300g spam or hot dog
150ml evaporated milk or whole milk
1-2 teaspoon salt or more to taste
1 teaspoon ground black pepper

Instructions

1
Pour water into a large pot and bring it to boil. Add onions, garlic and chicken. Bring it to boil again, once boiled simmer for 20 minutes. Take the chicken out of the stock and leave on the side to cool down before taking the bones out & shredding the chicken.
2
Add celery, carrots and pasta into the chicken stock. Turn the heat up and bring it to boil making sure you mix occasionally so the pasta doesn’t stick at the bottom of the pot.
3
Turn the heat down. Add spam, milk, shredded chicken, salt and pepper into the pot. Mix the soup well, simmer for 15 minutes or until the pasta is cooked and taste. Add more salt if you want or milk if you like it creamier.
4
This dish is best served hot. Note that the pasta will continue to cook while it’s hot and eventually become very soft. It’s still delicious and you can still eat it.
