Spicey Chicken Soup

Caldo De Pollo

Caldo De Pollo

 I also roasted a chicken and the next day came up with this delicious and blog worthy soup.  The rain is back  and having a warm and subtly spicy chicken soup for leftovers has been comforting and yummy!  If you do not have a chicken carcass to boil down, I would sub 4-6 cups of already cooked shredded chicken and 10 cups of chicken broth.

Caldo De Pollo
1 chicken carcass (place in a large soup pot and add enough water to cover, bring to a boil and simmer for 2 hours or until all the meat has fallen off the bone. Pick out the bones and discard.  Add another 4-6 cups of water to bring back to a soup-like consistency)
5 carrots, diced
1 red onion, diced
1 14.5oz can diced tomatoes
1 cup Salsa Verde (I like the Trader Joe’s brand)
1/2 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon cumin
1 tablespoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Sea salt and black pepper to taste

After you have removed all the bones from the soup pot, add 4-6 more cups of water if needed back to the pot to bring to a soup like consistency.  Add all remaining ingredients, mix well and simmer for another 30-45 minutes.  Taste and add more seasoning if desired.  If you like it spicier kick up the cayenne pepper and cumin!!  Top with diced avocado and cilantro!
