anyway, you better get used to socal / mexican cuisine where you're moving  ;D

Can't wait. Filthy $6 burritos the size of a baby's leg that burn coming out as much as they did going in washed down with a dos Equis. It's going to be good.

1lb bacon cooked and chopped up. use about 1/4 to 1/2 cup of bacon grease and throw it in the soup.
1 stick of butter melted in sauce pan and used to brown an entire bulb of garlic. throw all into soup.

spices: i don't measure spices and season to taste with the following

- 6 whole bay leaves
- bay seasoning
- salt
- pepper corn blend , ground

- nutmeg

add all ingredients and bring to simmer, then lower to lowest stove setting at let it roll covered for about 5-6 hours.
