Serving size: 1-1/2 cups
Homemade chicken stock is always best—it’s full of flavor and much lower in sodium compared to regular or reduced-sodium broth.
Use disposable gloves when chopping hot peppers. Remove the seeds and membrane inside for a milder heat.
Try substituting beef for chicken for a variation of this recipe.
