I told you that I was going to use these baby crispy crowns again, they are delicious and today I am using them to thicken my Roman Beans Asopao. Not bad at all. “Asopao” is pretty much a thick soup or stew with cooked rice instead of noodles. I love to break the rules and add potatoes, mushrooms and whatever I have available at the time. I also like my “Asopao” thick but with a nice broth. If you prefer yours thicker, simply cook it in low a bit longer until the broth evaporates and the flavors concentrate.
