    lynnski / LA's Note:

    This recipe is an old time favorite at El Torito; and a delicious soup that we have really enjoyed. The restaurant, when submitting this recipe to the LA Times for their reader request column, also suggested that this can be made into a whole meal soup by adding hominy, corn or other grains. They also serve this at their weekend brunch.

      Nice soup with a little bite from the lime and the pepperjack! I wasn't sure how much bay leaf to put in, so I added 1 and removed it before serving. Thanks for sharing!
