Expert Tips

This stew can be made the day before and will taste just as good, if not better, the next day.

Every year, as winter starts to loom around the corner, I always hit the market to grab all the basic necessities to make my favorite comfort food: caldo de pollo (chicken soup). There's nothing better than coming home after a long day and opening the fridge to find a little something cozy to eat and warm my belly. And when people come over, it's such a nice thing to have a pot of chicken soup on the stove ready to be shared. It's super easy to make, too, basically requiring just 5 or 6 veggies and some chicken. I remember as a kid, every time anybody got sick during the winter, there was my grandpa Sando, scuttling about the kitchen making a pot of caldo de pollo. It just represents wholesome goodness to me. And it fills me with that holiday spirit as I eat it with a big smile on my face.

Directions

  • 1 In a large pot filled halfway with water, add the chicken, onion, garlic cloves, celery, cilantro, salt, pepper and carrots and heat over a medium flame. Cover the pot with a lid and bring to a boil.
  • 2 Once it boils, add in the potatoes and zucchini. Cover the stew again and lower the flame to a simmer. Cook for an additional 40 minutes or until the veggies are fork tender.
  • 3 Serve hot with Mexican rice and lime. Eat with corn tortillas.
  • 4 Enjoy!
