Soup’r Delicious 2014
Audrey’s Charity: House of Grace of the Adirondacks
WEEK 1: March 3-7, 2014
This soup was featured at the cafe for one week in March as part of our Soup’r Delicious charity event.
“I am from the southwest and green chiles are a big deal out there, as is authentic Mexican fare. This recipe is dedicated to my Aunt Margery Pruitt of Farmington, NM who is an avid canner and who judges canned items for the fair in Durango, Colorado. If this [soup] can raise money for House of Grace, she would be very proud and happy. ” – Audrey Jean Shaw.
