Tis the season for soups. I am new to Texas and Lord knows that I should not be cold, but I confess. After moving here in the dead heat of summer, my blood thinned quickly and Im longing for warmth.
Here is a Yummy soup from a cafe from none other than IOWA! I thought that was funny being the name is TEX MEX SOUP!!!

1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped
2 cloves of garlic, minced

2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
Salt and pepper to taste
