  1. Good Morning Holly, I just love all your recipes and look forward to them everyday. Love the alphabet soup recipe but I find it hard to buy the alphabet macaroni anymore. Thank goodness I did find a source. Our local fire company adds them to their chicken corn soup every year. Keep up the wonderful recipes.

    1. Look in the Mexican section at your grocery store. They usually carry it. Or go to a Mexican grocery store. I hope this helps you.
