    dawnie2u's Note:

    This is a spicy delicious Mexican chicken soup. It's flavor only gets better the next day. A flavorful homemade stock really makes this soup, but commercial stock is good too, just make sure you check for saltiness before adding additional salt. Personally, I like a spicier soup, so I would add 2-3 chipotle chiles

      Excellent recipe! I did modify mine slightly to exclude the beans and carrots then I created a paste with the onions, garlic and chipotle and cooked with the chicken followed by adding the broth. Which resulted in a great flavor profile and I garnished with mexican cheese, cilantro and seasoned tortilla strips.

      I tasted this sopa in a restaurant in New Mexico for the first time and wanted a recipe that replicated the great taste. This recipe is IT! I used organic chicken stock and oregano, cumin and thyme for the herbs and added a bay leaf. I also added celery and it tasted great.
