This is a great recipe from Tampa, where I loved the Cuban restaurants. I had this soup in several restaurants before I found the recipe! If you have a small army to feed, you may add a few potatoes and stalks of celery. I have never done that even when serving for several teenage boys!! This soup freezes well.
