“The Peach Tree Tea Room in Fredericksburg, Texas serves this. It is one of the owner's (Hector Pedregon's) favorites. I think of it as a very good way to use carrots, especially if children aren't too hep on cooked carrots. I did not use the cilantro or baking soda, and I used 6 bouillon cubes in 6 cups water instead of the chicken broth. I also used a 4 oz. can of diced green chiles instead of using fresh. Garnish with sour cream and toasted almonds if desired. Preparation and cooking time are esitmates. I have tried a few of their recipes from their 2 books, and all of them have been winners.”
