Recipe by Nateskawaii

This is a very heart warming soup much like a chicken soup but much more flavorful. I make this alot in winter especially during times that my family is sick. It also freezes well and I often ffreeze it into individual portions so I can warm up 1 bowl at a time if need be.My husband likes to add Tapatio or Valentin hot sauce to his soup after I serve him, I like a little he likes alot so this is optional according to your own taste.
