Caldo de pollo, or Mexican chicken soup, is a staple of Mexican households. As in many other countries, in Mexico, a nice plate of chicken soup symbolizes family bonds and home cooking.
Soups (or “caldos”) are one of the less-known aspects of Mexican cuisine. In some states, there is a variety of caldo made with fish (caldo “michi”), while in the state of San Luis Potosi “caldo loco”, or “crazy soup” is very popular (the dish owes its name to the fact that almost any ingredient can be used, from pineapple to corn.)
The Most Popular “Caldo” in Mexico
However, caldo de pollo remains the most popular caldo in Mexico and one of the less common dishes in Mexican restaurants. Being an authentic Mexican restaurant, at El Pollo Norteño we offer caldo de pollo so you can enjoy this delicious Mexican tradition.
Our caldo de pollo is made with corn, zucchini, potatoes, carrots, and squash, and served with two whole pieces of chicken. Warm and nutritious, caldo de pollo is a delicious throwback to the times when life was a little less hectic and people (our grandmas and grandpas) had more time to cook.
Delicious, but Also Nutritious
From a nutritional standpoint, caldo de pollo is a smart choice. This traditional Mexican dish is a good source of vitamin A, amino acids, and proteins.
