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!  If you do not have a chicken carcass 4 boneless breast and 4-6 cups of chicken stock can be substituted. If using boneless breasts can be done in slow cooker.
