Caldito ~ 1950′s New Mexican Soup Recipe
Yes, it’s a classic 1950’s New Mexican soup but it’s always seemed, I don’t know, kind of flat. Mom loved it. She said it reminded her of her mom’s cooking. I’m too smart to make any comments about that but I will give some advice. but take my advice. Try it with lots and lots offresh roasted, peeled, chopped green chile or a huge spoonfuls of pico de gallo.
