Mexican Chicken Soup

"Rather like menudo without the tripe. Spicy and warm. Perfect for a winter day. Good for those who find traditional chicken soup too prosaic and bland. If you can't find posole, which is also called hominy, feel free to substitute frozen corn kernels."

    This was exactly the starting place I was looking for. The seasonings are perfect without being spicy. I skipped a couple of steps only because I don't brown or precook anything when using my crockpot. So I left out the oil and put everything straight into the crockpot. Made a few substitutions (breasts instead of thighs, frozen corn and black beans instead of hominy), but that's the beauty of this soup. The base flavor is what you find in a good Mexican restaurant and you can customize the additions based on preference. Been looking for this recipe for a long time. Thank you!

    A great soup to add to my collection! I think you could add either a small amount of rice, or some thin noodles to make it a bit more hearty. I did garnish this soup with some crumbled tortilla chips, and this added some texture as well.

    Sooooo Good! I made as directed except I used ground turkey ( I try to put it in meals where the hubby and kids won't gripe ). It was so good! I'm pregnant and currently in that quesy stage, so I can't eat heavy food. Very filling and so so yummy! I served it with warm flour tortillas and butter with salsa to dip in. Perfect meal!

    Great way to use up all the leftover turkey from Thanksgiving!! I added a whole bunch of cilantro in while it was simmering because I LOOVE cilantro... so it turned out extra delicious!
