Caldo de pollo (Chicken soup) I Needed something comforting. What’s your go to comfort meal?
That Chile oil made it pop 💣😍
Large pack of chicken drumsticks (usually at least a 14-16 pack)
1 8oz can tomato sauce
1 yellow onion (chopped)
6 large garlic cloves (minced)
Bunch of washed fresh cilantro (roughly chopped)
4-5 zucchini’s (washed, cut off ends and cut up in circles)
4 corn on the cobs snapped or cut in half
1 head of cabbage (washed, cut out core and cut into bunches)
4 roma tomatoes (washed, cut off stem side, half and slice into pieces)
4 Yellow Yukon gold potatoes (washed and cut up)
Knorr chicken bouillon
Hot sauce (your fav kind, I use Valentina)
Warm corn tortillas
Start by adding water to a LARGE pot. I don’t measure the water but about a little over half the pot. Your going to want to get it to coke to a boil and then turn it down to a low simmer. Add the drumsticks, onion, garlic and salt. Once the top starts to foam, skim the top careful to make sure you don’t take out the tiny garlic pieces. Add the whole 8oz can of tomato sauce and gently stir. Let simmer for 45 minutes.
Now add a couple spoonfuls of the chicken bouillon. Stir gently. Taste for salt and if needed more chicken bouillon. This is going to be to your liking on the control of salt.
Add all the veggies, including the cilantro. I use the whole bunch of chopped cilantro but we love cilantro. Add the cilantro to your liking or opt out if you don’t like cilantro. I don’t recommend though.
Let simmer on low for about another 30 minutes.
It’s ready to serve. Drizzle on top your fav hot sauce. I use Valentina. Squeeze some fresh lime juice. Also dip your tortilla chips or crumble some in. Or warm corn tortillas dipped in. Delish.
This is so comforting!
