This is how you eat soup when it's hot outside. I like to season the chicken with chili powder and cumin, then toss them in the turbo broiler.

I'm only giving this a three star because with the spices stated it is pretty bland. I triple the spices add quite a bit of hot sauce and this soup is spot on. Very good base but for us just needed the spices kicked up some and next time I think I will also add another can of hominy. Read More

I use leftover ham instead of the chicken and I add 2 jalapeños and 1 tsp of cayenne powder pepper. If you like it hot this is for you. Read More

I made this for the first time last night. It was delicious. The only changes that I would possibly make are to double up on the solids. Another idea is to maybe substitute shrimp for the chicken adding more cumin and perhaps some cayenne pepper. Read More

This soup was so good and it s so cold outside! I made my own broth by boiling the chicken thighs in water with salt pepper a few slices of white onion and poultry seasoning. I also have picky eaters who don t like chunky tomatoes in their soup so I blended the can of tomatoes in my blender. I just added all the ingredients to the broth once the thighs were done brought to a boil and then simmered. Added the meat back in once it was cooled and shredded. Topped the bowls with cheese cilantro and tortilla strips. I also added a can of sweet corn that I roasted over the stove and it s juice. I did NOT include the juice from the hominy. I only had white hominy if I had yellow I wouldn t have added the corn. Read More

I thought this turned out extremely good, but did make some changes, which I think made it very flavorful. I cooked up a family pack of chicken breasts on the grill, rubbed with blackening seasoning, onion powder, and smoked paprika. I chopped the chicken, combined the hominy (I used 5-14oz cans. I added more smoked paprika, green onion and a few cloves of garlic. I also added a can of chipotle chilis in adobo sauce, finely chopped. Then I juiced 2 limes. I started sautéing it, and then added in 4 cans of diced tomatoes with jalapenos. Added some cumin, and then 2 qt of chicken broth. I added a whole bunch of cilantro to the soup because I can't get enough of cilantro. It turned out fantastic. Read More
