My friend Karen made a similar soup to this for me when I visited her in PV. I developed this recipe when I returned home. This is a very light, delicious soup that is hearty enough for a main dish. I serve it with a toasted tortilla. For gluten free dish do not serve the tortilla.
If you use the jalapeno in the stock it will make the stock quite spicy. The remaining chicken may be used in a salad or whatever you like.
