Directions

1
In a large pot, cover chicken breasts with broth and bring to a boil. Add water if necessary so that liquid covers chicken by 1 inch.
2
Cook for 15 minutes, skimming off any fat that floats to the surface.
3
Add seeded and diced chiles (be sure to wear rubber gloves and don't touch your face).
4
Add potatoes, corn, onion, celery, carrots and seasonings. Reduce heat, cover pot and simmer for 30 minutes.
5
Add zucchini and adjust salt and pepper, if necessary. Continue simmering until vegetables are tender.

I love this soup! I really love having it when I am sick; it seems to make me feel better. Great recipe; I have never made it myself but go and buy it at a family owned Mexican restaurant.

Yes, Kim, it does seem to make you feel better when you're sick and it is so good on a chilly day. Hope you try making this yourself....it's fairly easy. Enjoy ;)
