Caldo De Pollo

It's definitely fall now that temperatures are cooler and scarfs are back in style! If there's one thing I love about fall (and winter) it's all the yummy comfort food made for these seasons. 
Growing up my mother made the best stews: shrimp, beef and of course chicken (caldo de pollo). Check out this delicious chicken stew recipe and feast on a meal the ENTIRE family will love. Just ask my 2 and 3 years olds!


Boil 4-5 quartz of water
Add to water:
Large chucks of medium white onion
Large chucks of medium tomato
Diced garlic (2-5)
Chicken stock cubes (2-3)
Salt and pepper
Chicken legs or quarters (5-8)

Squeeze in 2-5 lemons (acidity up to you)
Cilantro (1/8 of a standard bunch, no stem)

Boil above ingredients for about 25 mins (high heat).

After 25 mins add:
Large diced potato pieces

After 10 mins add:
Slices of zucchini
Slices of carrots
Corn on cob (small)

Cook everything together about 15 mins. check that carrots and zucchini are fully cooked.
