    duonyte's Note:

    Summer's bountiful garden is showcased in this delicious soup. The original recipe did not call for potato, but as Peru is the potato's home, I felt that it would be appropriate. I did not have the aji amarillo paste, so just improvised with several different peppers. If you cook the chicken ahead of time, this is very fast to make. Adding a bit more chicken and the potato makes this more of an entree soup. Very flavorful and fun to eat. From Sunset Magazine, August 2012.

      Very good soup that's basically a meal in itself. I could not find the aji amarillo paste, so I used sambal oelek. It probably tastes different, but I liked it in the soup. I loved the rustic addition of corn in here especially.

      Uncomplicated and delicious soup! If you can find the aji amarillo chili paste, I highly recommended. Not spicy but very, very flavourful.
