Yucatan - Style Chicken and Vegetable Soup

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by adriennenewton

A spicier version of chicken vegetable soup. Even better the next day. You might want to start with 1 chipotle for the heat factor. Wash hands after handling. Chipotles in adobo sauce are in the Mexican food section and leftover freezes well.

Perfect soup for a cold night! It had the right amount of heat for us. I skipped the cilantro bacause the store was out and forgot the salt but it was fine without it. I used cherry tomatoes because they taste best right now and grated zucchini from the garden this Summer that I froze. I served it with sour cream and you should have heard all of the slurping! LOL!! Thanks so much for posting this wonderful soup recipe! Made for My 3 Chefs '08.
