It's starting to get a little chilly in the 915 as the first freeze of the season is expected to hit this week.

As the temperatures drop in El Paso, it's only logical that we all begin to prepare and the only way to prepare is if you have these five items at the ready!

As temperatures drop, I know many of you have already busted out your:

Unlike my mom who loves to make caldo in the hot summer heat, this is the PERFECT time to make some caldo! Actually, any kind of warm, brothy dish like pozole or menudo.
