Mexican inspired chicken soup with Colombian cheese bread – yum!

Recipe for chicken soup, recipe for cheese bread, how do i make cheese bread, easy recipe for chicken soup, simple cheese bread recipe, quick chicken soup recipe…..these are all things we have typed into google at one point or another.  Normally we get caught up in the usual list of US and UK recipe sites and so I thought I would offer you something different – classic comforting dishes, with a hint of Latin America.  However, if you LOVE soup, the only place you should be looking for soupy recipes is What’s The Soup!

When I was doing research for for All You Knead Is Bread, I was lucky enough to go to Mexico where the food is amazing.  Seriously, whatever you think about Mexican food, if you have never been there, you just have to stop thinking and start saving for a plane ticket.  The food is amazing.  Certain dishes and flavours dominate and you may be surprised to learn that, among these dominant dishes and flavours is hearty soup!  So, without further ado, a recipe for chicken soup inspired by the cooking of Mexico.

Ingredients (as much as you need for as many as you feed)

To ladle over the soup innards:

Rich chicken stock (2 ladles per person)

Soup innards:
