Caldo De Hongos

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Starrynews

This is a delicious, very simple soup with great flavors. It is largely broth/water-based with some easy ingredients to add flavor. You can decrease the amount of jalapeno if you'd prefer it to be a bit milder (or remove the seeds and ribs from the jalapenos). I received this from a friend at my bridal shower. This is the basic recipe, but you could always add more to the soup if you wanted to make it heartier or use it as an entree - another 1 lb of mushrooms works well, or some shredded chicken, beans, etc.
