Right now, we happen to be in one of those very few months in Houston when one can truly enjoy a nice bowl of hot soup.
This recipe is adapted from a favorite made by my friend Cindy Smith. It is perfect for a cold, rainy day when you're craving something warm and savory, with little output required. The stars of the recipe are Texas 1015 Sweet Yellow Onions. There are just a few other ingredients, so be sure to use the best quality you can find.
The recipe, after the jump.
