  • 1

    Combine all ingredients in a large pot over high heat

  • 2

    Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 2 to 3 hours or until soup has reduced and is thick and brownish in color. It should have the consistency of chili. Stir occasionally for the first few hours, but stir often in the last hour. The edges of the potatoes should become more rounded, and the nuts will soften.
