Very good. I make a similar central american chicken soup but this one has a lot more spices which I was really excited to try out. Thanks for posting!
really excellent soup, especially for a cold winter's night. i only left out the peas, potatoes and achiote, but followed the rest exact. made great leftovers too, which i took to work for a couple days after. i usually get tired of leftovers but this was the first time i was sad to see them go. it was that good and will be made again often in my household. thanks for the new keeper.
Wow! This was fantastic soup. Every cuisine has its "Mom's chicken soup for what ails you" recipe. This must be it. It has layers of flavor and texture and is wonderful and comforting. After soaking and cooking so long, the rice absorbed into the broth making it thick and hearty. The potatoes carrots and peas, added later, kept their shape and texture. Don't skip the avocado and cilantro garnish, as it provides another layer of flavor and texture. We added some hot sauce to "kick it up" a bit. One thing, the cooking time indicated is not correct. It actually takes much longer but is well worth it! I'll make this one again. Great ZWT4 discovery.
