      Great recipe! Quite accurate, while most Mexican people don't add tomatoes to their caldo, there are some people out there who do. It really depends what region from Mexico you're from. I would suggest some minor changes to improve the flavor, like instead of using garlic powder, try some fresh minced garlic. I also mince my onion instead of quarters, that's purely to trick the people in my household who don't like onions. I add them early along with a handful of fresh cilantro in order to flavor the broth. I don't use celery, mainly because I don't like it :P I guess I could always mince it but I rather not, heh heh heh. I use chayote squash, if you can find it where you live and use small potatoes whole, instead of cutting the big potatoes to avoid a starchy soup. I don't like cabbage either. In some Mexican regions, people add plantain bananas to the soup also. It's really a very versatile soup, for you to add your veggies that are about to go expire. I sometimes add mushrooms too, just personal preference, nothing authentic about that. If you like the flavor, garnish with diced onions and fresh cilantro. Thanks for the recipe, I was just looking for the amount of heat I should been cooking in, but I thought I would rate your recipe, thanks!

      Awesome recipe. To make the soup lower in fat, I used lean stew meat instead of beef bones. I also used fresh garlic instead of powder.

      Sorry but the real caldo de res you don%u2019t put tomatoes, garlic and bell peppers ok and when you are going to add the vegetables after the meat is done you add them all at one time and just make sure that you don%u2019t overcook them.
      Replacing the celery with cilantro and your soup will taste a lot better if you like cilantro I do it gives it a better taste than with celery.
