Caldo de Pollo

Recipe by  

"This is my first attempt at making caldo de pollo. I think it turned out great. You might need to add salt to taste as my recipe doesn't have very much. I like to serve this with warm corn tortillas and a side of Spanish rice and refried beans. Please enjoy and let me know what you think."

  2. Mix carrots, potatoes, zucchini, chayote, and white onion in the broth, turn heat to medium-low, and cook soup at a low boil until carrots and potatoes are tender, 45 minutes to 1 hour. Stir chopped cilantro into soup, simmer for 5 minutes, and serve.

I am definitely going to try this recipe as I love homemade soups but I'm just curious, the picture shows corn on the cob and cabbage and yet neither is listed in the recipe......but I will definitely try it and since I love cabbage I will add it as well.

Great recipe!! I made it but added one tablespoon of dried cumin, halved the salt and added corn on the cob. Even halving the recipe, it fed 8+ people.

I always add corn and cabbage, and it comes out tasting the same as my gramma's used to. Love this - thank you!!!

I was looking for a recipe similar to a Mexican soup I used to get from a catering truck in the neighborhood I used to work in. (Now know it's called caldo de pollo :) ). I've been craving it for months! This was very close, but it needed a bit more spice. I added ground black pepper (1/4 tsp. ++) and about the same amount of cumin. I pulled off the chicken skin before adding the veggies so we wouldn't have to deal with it after serving. Super good! A++.
