    Terri Juwan's Note:

    Two soups in a bowl, make sure the soups are of a similar consistency so that they don't run together when ladled in the bowl. Had lunch at the Blue Mesa Grill in Addison, TX...some of the best Southwestern food I have eaten...I didn't get to try this, but it sounds delicious. This seems like it will take a long to time to get both soups done, so please let me know of any shortcuts you may come up with. Their recipes are posted at times are estimated
