One taste of this soup at my grandparents' then favorite Mexican restaurant in Tucson - Molina's - and my mom (whose grandchildren called Merm) had to make her own. This is how she made hers and actually everyone liked Mom's version (made with love) better than Molina's. This is pure comfort food for my Dad and for me and we chat about memories of my beloved Mother as we eat. Serve with fresh warm flour tortillas for dipping and of course a nice Mexican beer.
