    Six cups of water, add 1 chicken part, i.e. neck and 1 packet of Sazón Goya with achiotte and culantro. Add 1 large clove of garlic, finely minced. Discard chicken part before pureeing soup.

    Absolutely yummy, filling and easy to throw together. I followed the review suggesting using a couple of carrots and broth and the color is enhanced as well as the nutrional value. I drained the vegetables, reserving all the stock and added cups at a time as it pureed to ensure it wouldn't be over-thin. I'm glad I did because I think I only ended up using 3 or 4 cups to get a thickish soup. A+ for this one, thanks!

    Simple and tasty. And much healthier than a cream soup.

    This was a great soup, easy to make- I added a few ingredients ( onions, garlic) and cooked in some turkey stock I had left over. My husband loved it.

    This was a *great* soup! I actually used mock mashed potatoes (cauliflower) for a lower carb soup and it was superb! Thanks!!
