During the cold months, a bowl of a delicious hot soup is what I crave. This is one of my favorite soups of all time and not to mention it’s so easy to make! It’s bursting with incredible flavor.


2 pounds boneless skinless chicken thighs

1 pound tomatillos, husks removed and washed

1 large white onion, roughly chopped

4 cloves garlic, chopped

1/2 cup cilantro stems chopped

3 jalapenos, seeds removed 

6 cups chicken stock

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon cumin

Handful chopped cilantro

1 23 oz can hominey, drained and rinsed


Chopped fresh cilantro

Lime wedges

Sliced radishes

Queso fresco, crumbled


In a heavy bottom pot over high add chicken thighs, tomatillos, chopped onion, chopped garlic, cilantro stems, chicken broth, salt, and cumin

Let it come up to a boil and turn it down to medium low to let it simmer for 40 minutes

After cooking for 40 minutes remove the cooked chicken and put into a bowl and using two forks shred

Using a slotted spoon remove all of the solids and put into a blender. To the blender add chopped cilanto and puree until smooth

Add the pureed liquid back into the pot along with the hominey and shredded chicken. Let the mixture simmer for 15 minutes

Once cooked, ladle the soup into a bowl and top with more fresh chopped cilantro, sliced radishes, a big squeeze or fresh lime, and crumbled queso fresco

Thats it! This delicious soup will make you say posOLEEE!
