Mexican Chicken Soup
From Cook's Country
Mexican chicken soup is a thicker, richer, spicier rendition of everybody’s favorite soup. Beans, corn, tomatoes, and chiles all play a role. To make this soup with a full, authentic flavor, we started with boneless. skinless chicken thighs, which are far moister and richer flavored than white breast meat. Poaching the chicken in canned chicken broth enriched the broth and made it taste homemade. For authentic flavor, we “fried" the pureed tomatoes, onions, garlic, and chiles until the flavor and color had intensified. Most Mexican sauces are prepared in this fashion.
Serves 6 to 8
Garnish the soup with avocado, Monterey Jack cheese, and cilantro. You can temper the heat of this spicy soup by reducing the amount of adobo sauce.
