Soups are versatile and nutritious dishes, with each type boasting a unique flavour determined by the ingredients used in the recipe.
One of the most popular and sought-after broth soups is caldo de pollo, a Mexican-style chicken soup made using different cuts of chicken and a variety of vegetables. In Mexican cuisine, ‘caldo’ translates to ‘broth’ in English, while ‘pollo’ means ‘chicken’.
While every Mexican household has its own version of caldo de pollo, the recipe typically includes chicken and vegetables. This comforting broth soup is often served with a few slices of fresh avocado and cilantro (known as coriander in English) and always comes with wedges of lime on the side, adding a tangy and citrusy kick to the dish.
Whether enjoyed on a cold winter day or as a comforting meal, caldo de pollo is a delicious and satisfying broth soup that’s sure to warm your heart and soul.
