Ranch Recipe # 18: Caldo de Pollo For What Ails You

Caldo de Pollo Recipe

This soup will cure what ails you.

I know because I made it this afternoon.

You can only take so much cough medicine, right?



Caldo de Pollo  (Chicken Soup)

Slow boil a chicken that has been cut into pieces.

Add one large onion cut into chunks and a teaspoon of minced garlic.
Remove the chicken once it is done.

To the broth, add cut Mexican squash,

cut carrots,

2-3 potatoes peeled and cut into chunks,

a can of whole tomatoes,

and a bag of frozen whole kernel corn.

While that returns to a boil, shred the chicken.

Return the chicken to the broth.

And now for the most important part.


Begin by adding a teaspoon of Knorr Caldo de Pollo bouillon.

Stir and taste.

Add about a teaspon of ground cumin.

Stir and taste.

Add about a teaspoon of Knorr Caldo de Tomate.

Stir and taste.

Continue adding these spices until the soup tastes just right.

Yes! These are the instructions.

I promise you it will be worth it.

Once it tastes just right, top with chopped, fresh cilantro , and serve.

I hope you're enjoying the new year.

Pretty sure I could eat this everyday! Mexican chicken soups are so delicious and not fattening. They are often my choice.

I'm so glad you joined a book club! It's surprising to me how much I'm enjoying it. :)
The group really has forced me out of my reading comfort zone and the conversation is great. Last time one of the girls said, "This sounds really nerdy but I'm sure enjoying this intelligent conversation." It's so true! We also tend to relate to the stories on some level or some way and that leads off to tangent conversations. It's so much fun.

Let me know what books y'all choose.
