I grew up in Miami and moved to Salt Lake City about 12 years ago. I have been missing Cuban food desperately. When we got a cold front today and the temperature dropped into the 50's, I decided I should try making Sopa de Pollo. Because I'm not Cuban, I didn't grow up having this made in my household so I had to look up a recipe... And I found yours. It's absolutely amazing! I have a quetion for you, though. How much pasta are you supposed to put in it? I think I may have put too much in because all of the sudden, there isn't any broth. I'm guessing all the pasta I put in soaked it all up. Anyway, thanks for the wonderful memories of growing up with sopa de pollo!
