Caldo de Pollo


To welcome the season of Fall and (flu season), Today I am sharing with y'all a "Caldo de Pollo" recipe, My Mother-in-Law's Style.(Thanks Gina)
This caldo is super simple and easy to make. 



Ingredients:
Potatoes
 (washed, peeled, cut)
Zucchini
(washed,cut)
Carrots
(washed, cut, or use pre cut baby carrots)
Bell Pepper
( washed, cut, -not too small will shrink in water)
Corn 
( washed, cut)
Cilantro
( just a small ring of cilantro will do, washed, and chopped)
Chicken
(Whole chicken or chicken breasts, washed,cut)
Small Onion
( cut, white or red.. your preference)
Garlic
(2 dientes)
Oregano 
( we used fresh from Gina's garden)
Salt
(Al Gusto)
Knorr Chicken Granulated Bouillon
( 1 tbs)

Bring a large pot of water to boil on high heat, placing the chicken, onion, oregano, garlic and salt. Cover and let cook for 45 minutes. Using a spoon, remove the foam that builds up as the caldo cooks.

Next you will add all your veggies. Gina likes to add the corn first since it takes the longest to cook. After 15 minutes or so she then adds the remaining of the veggies into the pot along with 
the chicken bouillon. 
Cover & let cook for another 45 min and you're all done!

What I love about this recipe is that it is very similar to my own mommas recipe. If you are a veggie lover, please yourself & load your caldo with all the veggies you wish! Growing up, my mom would load our caldo with all these veggies including Chayote, Cabbage, and even Rice!  Pair it up with some home made fresh tortillas, a lime, y un chilito & you'll have the perfect plate. I Hope I made y'all hungry, but I mostly hope you enjoy this recipe. Does your family use a special ingredient I did not mention for their caldos? Please share in the comments below, I'd love to try it out!
