How has the first week of fall been to you? It's been a bit rainy here in Boston. That's alright with me. Rain causes me to slow down, take time to think, relax and COOK!!! Yes, so whilst thinking I decided to begin a soup series. Which led me to cook. Heheheh.
For the first soup recipe in the series we're looking at a delish, filling, flavorful spicy chicken and potato soup.
This recipe is super simple. Especially since I'm starting with canned broth.
What you'll need:
one 3 lb can of chicken broth
3 green onions
1/4 small white onion diced
4 medium sized potatoes (peeled and diced into bite sized pieces)
half a red pepper diced
half a green pepper diced
1 tsp crushed red pepper
1+1/2 cups cooked chicken meat shredded
Goya Sazon seasoning packet
(recipe feeds 4 greedy people)
- Empty can of broth into a medium stock pot, bring your broth to a boil.
- While waiting for broth to boil, peel and dice potatoes.
- Once broth has boiled add packet of Goya seasoning.
- mix seasoning into broth with a large spoon, then add potatoes, green onions, onion, peppers and red pepper flakes.
- Bring back to a boil, add chicken, cover, lower heat and let simmer for 20 minutes. Your potatoes will be tender, chicken will stay moist and your soup will be full of flavor.
Nothing like homemade soup. It beats the canned stuff every time ;-)
That's my 2 cents!
