Chicken-chile soup

Yield: 8 Servings

Measure Ingredient
3 pounds Chicken leg quarters (4 legs/thighs or so--one store-bought package)
3 \N Big carrots; sliced into 1/4 inch pieces
1 \N Green pepper; cleaned out and hunked into 1/2 inch pieces
10 \N Fresh Jalapenoes (or more); de-seeded and diced 1/4 inch squares
1 can Mushroom soup
1 pack (12-oz) egg or no-egg noodles (1/2inch wide)
2 tablespoons (heaping) margerine
\N \N Salt; pepper, powdered ginger, crushed chiles of choice

Skim the thick layer of chicken fat from the broth; you should have about 3 or 4 quarts broth. Dump the de-boned chicken back into the broth and bring to a boil; salt heavily (I like salt--about ½ teaspoon), heavy black pepper dose, dump in two teaspoons of powdered ginger. dump in fresh carrot slices, let boil/simmer for about 8 minutes dump in entire bag of noodles. when noodles are *almost* fork-cutting soft, dump in the green pepper hunks and diced jalapenoes. Let cook until noodles _are_ fork-cutting soft and peppers are still somewhat crisp. dump in 1 undiluted can mushroom soup and mix.

Shake a good dose of hot chile-powder of your choice into the mix. Throw in 2 tablespoons of margerine. When margerine has melted, dip soup into bowls and eat.

(You just play with the broth by adding water to get the broth/noodle ratio you want). This will cure the common cold. The first time I made it, within 2 days I was back at wirk (WIRK?) Or at least make it more enjoyable.
