  • Season the cut chicken breast with the salt and 1/2 of the ground cumin seed.

  • Add the garlic, oregano & jalapeno and cook another 5 minutes or so.

  • Add the chicken broth, salsa verde (tomatillo sauce), green pepper, celery & jicama (if available). Stir well.
  • Add the canellini (or garbanzo) beans & hominy and stir gently to mix well.
  • Check for seasonings, adding more ground cumin, salt or jalapeno to your taste.
  • Bring to a gentle boil then simmer on low for 1 1/2 hours until done.
  • The jicama will stay crunchy, adding a bit of texture to the soup.
