"I recently came back from Del Mar, CA, and a few of the Mexican restaurants served Sonoran-style Caldo De Pollo. I attempted to mimic this recipe as closely as I could to match the delicious soup I ate there. I'm open to suggestions to make this recipe better as this is my first time attempting it."

This recipe is a great starter. It was just the flavor I was looking for. I followed the recipe, but added/adjusted the following. I omitted the broth and used chicken and tomato bouillon cubes....

This is a great attempt at a Caldo Tlalpe├▒o, a very typical Mexican chicken soup. In order to be true, it needs to have some small diced pico de gallo (tomato, onion, Serrano pepper) and Oaxaca ...

the Spanish rice is usually fried until lightly tan then add water/chicken broth/tomatoes/cumin/corn cover and cook low heat until done approx. 15 min
