The word "sopas" was borrowed from the Spanish, and it refers to soups in general. But here in the Philippines, sopas is a milky chicken and macaroni soup. It makes a great meal starter or even an afternoon merienda (snack). But at home, my husband and I like to have it alone for dinner. Because it is a combination of chicken, macaroni, and veggies, it's good enough to be a complete meal. It's easy, it's healthy, and it's tasty. That's why it's become a weekly habit that we look forward to at home!
Since milk spoils easily, you can choose not to mix in the milk while cooking and add it per serving instead.
