This recipe comes from my mother. My grandma taught my mother most of the delicious food that she now cooks for us. We typically have this soup during easter time or when I need to boost up my immune system. My mother always says “con una sopita calientita, se te quita todo los germenes malos” - with a warm soup, all bad germs goes away
