Recipe by La_Nanita
This is another favorite in my household. I have addapted this recipe for the slow cooker, I like to leave it cooking while we go to church on Sundays. But it works just as well on the stove top and even better over a fire pit, with shorter cooking times. And if you ever have a killer hang over, this soup will fix you right up! That is why it is traditionally eaten the day after a big party. This soup can easily be made with any combination of the proteins and is also made with seafood. I have not prepared with seafood yet, but would imagine that you have to let the veggetables cook by themselves for a while before adding in the fish as it is more delicate.
