This caldo de res, (Mexican beef soup), is seriously one of the most comforting soups ever. It probably has to do a lot with the fact that it was a staple in our house growing up and was always something I looked forward to. To this day my abuelita Socorro makes THE BEST caldo de res and it always is so dang good for the soul. It is full of veggies and flavored by a delicious beef broth made from cooking the beef in water before adding all the veggies. It’s hearty but healthy and, let me me be real, perfect with a side of Mexican rice.CONTINUE READING
Caldo de Pollo (Mexican Chicken Soup)
Talk about comfort food! Caldo de Pollo is the ultimate comforting soup that is so familiar in Mexican households. It is full of all kinds of veggies and all the chicken your belly desires. Traditionally, as I grew up eating it, my mami would use a whole chicken and just cut it into the different parts. This way we all got a little bit of what we liked: my papi liked the chicken breast, my mami the wings, and I the thigh or drumstick. You can absolutely use any kind of chicken you want, mix and match, sub or add veggies. It’s so versatile and easy to make your own. There is one thing you must do though. You must add some salsa to your caldo de pollo and a squeeze or two of lime juice. It’s the cherry on top for this goodness.CONTINUE READING
