You would think that I would hate soups considering how many times I was told while growing up to eat my soup. “If you want to get bigger, smarter and prettier, you need to eat your soup,” my mom & Mamita would say.
But I actually love a good homemade soup. It’s one of those things that I crave when the weather start getting colder, like now. I like to serve this soup with a squeeze of lime juice, aji, and avocado on the side.
1 pound beef, diced
7 cups water
1/3 cup alinos sauce
2 potatoes, diced
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1/2 cup peas
1/3 cup rice
Salt and pepper
1. In a large pot place all the ingredients except the rice and cilantro. Bring to a boil and then reduce the heat to low and simmer for 50 minutes.
2. Add the rice and continue simmering for 15- 20 minutes more or until the rice is tender.
3. Season with salt and pepper. Stir in the cilantro and serve with avocado.
