Here is another recipe my mother in law shared with me, while teaching me how to make soups,main dishes,stews,appetizers,and desserts from Ecuador and Peru where my husband was born, and where he later grew up.
Easy, very inexpensive, flavorful! Our 3 sons never complained, and welcomed this hearty soup on many a cold winters night!
