    Pot Scrubber's Note:

    El Fenix Restaurant is a Dallas institution open since 1913. I had my first job waiting tables there and had a bowl of this soup everyday. I won't bother you with the details of what I had to do to get this coveted recipe out of temperamental Chef Jorge... but it is illegal in about half of the states.

      This soup was delicious, although I did make a few modifications. This recipe is a great base, but lends itself to adding things to suit your taste. I added 1 tsp of ground cumin and 2 tsp of chile powder. I used diced tomatoes with jalapeno for some added heat. I added black beans, corn, zucchini and carrots because I wanted lots of veggies in it. I also used chicken from a precooked rotisserie chicken and I used homemade chicken stock. We added cheese, avocado, cilantro, and tortilla chips and topped it off with a few dashes of Tobasco and a dollop of sour cream. Delicious!

      Well bend me over and SpanK Me! I've been naughty and I'll do it again just so I can have some more soup. Reminds me of the Chicken Soup served at a local Mexican Restraunt famous for their soup. I cut boneless skinless chicken breasts into 1 inch cubes and added it raw into the soup in step 3 and let it cook with the broth to save myself a step. Made for ZWT 5 by an Epicurean Queen!

      I have had this recipe in my "to try file" for years. I wish I had made it years ago. It's fantastic, super easy to make and packed full of flavor. I made it for a fundraiser lunch that I do every Wednesday and the crowd loved it. I used chicken thighs, crushed tomatoes, and diced green chilies with the hot sauce too. I also kept the onion and garlic in diced form because I don't have a lot of things here to use for cooking with (I bring most of my own stuff). Anyway, it was delicious and I think I've found a new favorite soup to make. Thanks Pot Scrubber!
