    Mexican style comfort food! Serve with a crusty bread on a cold day. This is from a clipping out of some forgotten 1998 magazine about Soups & Stews

      Yummy soup! I made it exactly as written. I would probably cut down on the carrots next time. The pesto was quite yummy as well and blended well with the soup. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
