"I recently came back from Del Mar, CA, and a few of the Mexican restaurants served Sonoran-style Caldo De Pollo. I attempted to mimic this recipe as closely as I could to match the delicious soup I ate there. I'm open to suggestions to make this recipe better as this is my first time attempting it." — Tbalberts

1 1/4 pounds
extra large chicken bouillon cubes (such as Knorr®)
salt and ground black pepper to taste
white onion, chopped, or to taste
avocado - peeled, pitted, and thinly sliced
fresh cilantro, chopped
This recipe is a great starter. It was just the flavor I was looking for. I followed the recipe, but added/adjusted the following. I omitted the broth and used chicken and tomato bouillon cubes. I still had a very rich, deep flavored soup. I added 1/2 cup each celery, carrots and tomato, just because 1. I needed to use them up, 2. I thought this soup needed some veggies, and 3. I like those veggies in chicken based soups. I didn't make the rice - I had regular steamed rice already. Lastly, I added a squeeze of lemon to bring out all the flavors. Excellent!! My husband, who isn't big on soups even liked this one. Will make again and again. Thank you for the recipe.
