Soak peanuts for 5 minutes in a bowl with hot water. Drain.
Serve with french fries and llajua (hot sauce).
If you add peas and potatoes, add them together with the peanut mixture and carrots.
If you add pasta, add it 10 minutes before turning off the heat.
If you add rice, add it 15 minutes before turning off the heat.
If you want a lighter, no so thick soup, add more water or chicken broth.
