It’s finally cold…ish in California, so we get a chance to enjoy hot, steaming bowls of soups. All kinds of soups! Thick soups, thin soups, chunky soups, soups with tripe, bone-in short ribs and even grilled cheese croutons. What more, January also is designated #NationalSoupMonth, and we have your soup playbook right here with our top 3 Mexican comfort soups: Sopa de Fideo, Menudo and Caldo de Res. So grab a bowl and don’t be afraid to grab a second helping of comfort.

A traditional Mexican dish, menudo is a spicy soup made with beef tripe. Making homemade menudo in my family typically signifies a major celebration, whether it be a wedding, baptism, or to ring in the New Year. Did I mention it is also good medicine for the crudo (hangover)?
Caldo de res, or beef soup, is a hearty Mexican soup that is best eaten with lots of lime and warm rolled corn tortillas.

I like heat and so this recipe has one dried Scorpion pepper added to the mix. Scorpion peppers are one of the hottest chiles in the world, with a mean heat of more than 1.2 million Scoville heat units (SHUs).
Adulting is hard stuff. Sure, there are the big things like taking care of kids or parents, unexpected car and home repairs, dealing with awful work situations, but sometimes the littlest things feel the most difficult. These days, one of my biggest dilemmas is finding what to feed myself in the mornings that is convenient, nourishing, and so tasty I’ll be psyched to eat it a few days a week. This...
