Gallina Pinta - Mexican Beef and Pinto Soup

        Gallina Pinta is a delicious soup from Sonora Mexico, a northwestern region with the Arizona border to the north. It's full of delicious flavor, tender beef, and lots of pinto beans. I was on Muy Delish , a Mexican cooking blog I enjoy and saw this recipe that made use of several different types of stewed beef.  I used the recipe as a great way to repurpose the leftover pot roast in the fridge. That coupled with a savory cooked salsa and a savory and well seasoned broth made for a simple and delicious dinner all the kids loved.  Soup Recipe 1 - 3 c. leftover shredded beef 1 can pinto beans, drained 1 can hominy, drained 1 onion, cut in half 2 Anaheim peppers, cut in half 4 cloves garlic, smashed 1 bunch cilantro 1 bay leaf 1/4 tsp. black peppercorns 8 c. beef broth Salsa 1 large tomato 1 onion 1 Anaheim pepper 2 cloves garlic 1 tsp. salt 2 Tbsp. oil Toppings Sliced green or red onion Fresh cilantro Sliced radish Lime wedges Toasted tortilla strips In a large soup pot simmer
