It's the middle of January in El Paso and the cold temps and gray skies have finally come and stayed. There's something about a cold day where you get home you make yourself some hot tea and wrap yourself in blankets. What's the best meal for a day like that? Well, we're asking you!

Considering this is El Paso and we do live on the United States / Mexican border we have two contenders that are appropriate. In one corner we have the classic Caldo De Res, and in the other corner, we have Menudo/ Pozole. It's time for the Buzz Adams Morning Show soup wars, where you decide the winner! Let's get it on!



According to TwoSleevers Caldo De Res is a classic and traditional Mexican beef stew with a light and flavorful broth. Full of simple but delicious flavors this beef stew combines onions and cilantro and vegetables like squash and corn with chunks of delicious fork-tender beef. Everything about this soup says comfort and hardiness in a bowl, it sounds like the perfect recipe to warm you up on a cold winter morning.

A lot of people may argue that menudo and posole shouldn't be put into the same group, but honestly, they have very similar ingredients in flavor profiles, so for that reason, it's really about just having this type of soup going up against a different one like caldo.

Menudo is also a traditional Mexican soup that is a staple of Mexican cuisine. Made with a broth with a red chili pepper base the meat for menudo is tripe, but the real flavor comes from the mixture of hominy, lime, onions, and oregano to season the broth. This soup is a staple of the weekend breakfast table and delicious and comforting any time of the year. But is especially nice when it's cold.

These are the contender's ladies and gentlemen for the best winter soup according to El Pasoans. Let us know who you think the winner is in the POLL below.
