    Gabesgirl's Note:

    Not all Mexican food is fried in lard and full of fat. This is a aromatic soup seasoned with rosemary and thyme and served with Panela (a Mexican moist cheese much like Mozzarella). You can substitute with cotija cheese as well.

      We like to have soup often as a healthy alternative. This soup was very good -- I loved the taste of the ham and carrots -- I'll put more carrots in next time because they added such a fresh flavor to the soup. I only used 1/2 of the cheese and it turned out just to our tastes. My husband loved it and I'm making a second batch to freeze tomorrow so we can have it on hand for those busy nights. Thanks, Gabesgirl, for submitting this great recipe!
