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.
