    This is something like a soup crossed with a stew. It can be a little messy to eat. This recipe is from a now closed taqueria in San Francisco.

      Really hit the spot on a cold, rainy, windy early spring evening! Cookie Dog, please check the recipe as you skipped directions for what to do with the zucchini & cabbage. I sort of figured you meant for it to go in after the corn, and we all loved it like that. Okay, so I didn't have chuck steak, but some very meaty soup bones. I added WAAAY more than 3 cloves of garlic, subbed tomato sauce for the diced tomatoes, and used corn kernels (took your advice about being messy to eat), skipped the zucchini completely (we're not big z. eaters here). Served with Cheddar Bay Biscuits (Red Lobster ) Recipes, this was a completely luscious meal. We all lingered at the table afterwards, so there was THAT element too! Thanks for a great dinner CD!

      This tasted even better than the caldos I've ordered in Mexican restaurants in the Mission (SF). My finicky pre-schooler couldn't get enough...I was thrilled! I added 2 extra cans of broth and extra carrots and potatoes because I wanted to stretch the recipe a bit...did not compromise the flavor at all. I also tweaked the cooking time, adding the vegetables at 45 minutes, then simmering another 45, because I was worried about the vegetables being cooked all the way through. As with with many foods, this was greatly enhanced with a couple of dashes of Tapatio! Thanks, cookiedog...this is a keeper. I'm adapting it to make caldo de pollo also.
