Brrrrrr! It's been so chilly here lately! I am so not a winter person. Have I said that before? I am cold from September through May with winter being the worst for me. To warm up in the winter I often have crock-pot meals or soup for dinner.
I rotate my favorite soups often during the winter. My husband loves my French Onion Soup, while I enjoy Broccoli Cheddar Soup or Potato Leek Soup. While I love our rotation of soups, I'm always up for something new. I found a Beef Noodle Soup that had Thai flavors in it and looked so pretty I knew I had to try it!
The broth is a beef base with large pieces of beef in the soup. There are noodles, basil, jalapenos, and lime with a drizzle of Sriracha. The soup bursts with citrus and spice and I loved every bite of it!
