This is another one of Luis' mums recipes.
It has a great mix of vegies and my kids eat it so it's a win/win situation.
I use carrots, green beans, pumpkin, fresh corn and potatoes.
Fry off some green caspicum pieces (these get thrown out or chop them finely and it will mix in the soup) with some garlic for a minute add your skirt steak cut up into cubes, add a teaspoon of cummin (ground) some vegeta (previous posts), a teaspoon of dried oregano and then start to add your vegies. I put the potatoes in first for a minute or so then add the carrot, pumpkin, beans and corn. I add boiling water until it just covers the whole mix. When it's almost done I taste for seasoning and I add a handful of long grain rice (stir it through). I put the lid on and turn the stove off. It make take ten or so minutes but the rice swells and absorbes the water and you get quite a thick soup. I top it with some sambal olek (marinated crushed chillies) and serve.
I have to rush through my Chilean recipes, as the gorgeous Argentine Paul (http://www.eatme.blogspot.com/) is posting Argentinian recipes which are so similar to the Chilean that we are looking like we are in a conspiracy to rule the blogging world with our heritage recipes!!! And I want to be the first diva!!! (Only joking!!!) Anyway I only have one more recipe in me and he has his grandmothers entire book.... wish I had a granny.... wish I had asked my mother to write things down... never mind I will do it for my girls or have this blog published which I hear you can do. They make it into a bound book and I think it is an excellent idea....
