Sopas is the Filipino version of minestrone and is one of my favorite soup. Loved by Filipinos and one of the most easiest and common Filipino recipes, this good food soup may be served as a snack or as a complete food meal and usually available in small eateries around the country, since it is so good. There are simplier ways to cook sopas, but we used pork and corned beef for this easy recipe. This simple and good food dish is best serve on cold weather and will definitely make you feel warm in and out.
