    Sooz Cooks's Note:

    One taste of this soup at my grandparents' then favorite Mexican restaurant in Tucson - Molina's - and my mom (whose grandchildren called Merm) had to make her own. This is how she made hers and actually everyone liked Mom's version (made with love) better than Molina's. This is pure comfort food for my Dad and for me and we chat about memories of my beloved Mother as we eat. Serve with fresh warm flour tortillas for dipping and of course a nice Mexican beer.

      This soup made a great lunch today! DH & I both enjoyed it very much and we loved the addition of the green chiles. I made a few changes by adding some bacon to the onion and garlic and I used less green chiles - 12 oz. vs. 27 oz. -- I would have used more, but didn't have them on hand. I used a more potatoes and stock as well just to stretch the soup. Will definitely make this delicious soup again.

      Mmmm...delicious! We tried it with and without the cheese and it was tasty both ways. I like the idea of trimming back on some of the calories sometimes and it would work here. I'm looking forward to making it again using fresh roasted chilies.Thank for sharing this yummy, comfort food recipe.
