I was taught to cook this soup by my first husband, who is from Mexico. He made this dish for the first time for me when we where pregnant with our first son.Needless to say, me being a hungrey pregnant woman, I ate 3 bowls, not small bowls, but LARGE bowls,it's that good!

Now I make this all the time, and its a huge hit at our house! And you will deffenatly have left overs for almost 3 days! Hope this dish makes its way to your next pot luck or dinner table soon!! Enjoy!
