Sopa Teologa (Theologic soup) is a traditional soup in Trujillo, believed to have been devised during the 17th century by Dominican monks. Because it includes bread in the ingredients, and because it has an attributed religious origin, it is called theologic. It is made of white bread, potato, tomato, sliced cheese and milk. It can have chicken or turkey meat, sometimes both. Seasonings include garlic, leek, celery, oregano, pepper, salt, white onion, bay leaf, and yellow chili pepper.
