Mexican Chicken Soup
Think a hearty and flavorful soup needs to cook all day? Think again.
Why This Recipe Works
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.
