I always wondered to my self how my mom moved so swiftly through the kitchen. She would make these amazing meals. From a very young age I was always intrigued with food and cooking. I wouldn't call my self a chef or anything. I love to cook because it's fun to me! Creating meals that not only taste good but make people happy bring joy to me. I will be sharing all types of recipes on here. But today I’ll be sharing one of my favorite meals my mom would make and honestly it is so simple to make which is the best part! Anyone can do it!
Ingredients (serving size 2 )
1. Wash your drum sticks and place them in your pot with a little bit more than half of water in your pot.
2. Turn you heat up to medium-high and let chicken boil and add a bit of salt (to your preference).
3. While you are waiting for your chicken to boil start cutting up your veggies into bite size pieces.
4. Slice the cabbage in half from top to bottom, straight through the core. Take one half and begin cutting into medium pieces.
5. Once the water with the chicken begins to boil (should take 45 min to an hour) start adding your veggies. Stir the pot so everything gets distributed evenly and then add two spoonfuls of caldo de pollo and one spoonful of caldo de tomate. (taste the soup for your preference in flavor... add more if desired. I love flavor so I always tend to add a bit more than I should! haha.)
6. Put a lid on your soup and let boil on medium-low heat. Add your cilantro and let cook for 45 mins. Keep checking on it until the veggies are soft, chicken is cooked and falling off the bone almost and it is ready to eat!
7. Now you can serve this with white rice and avocado! Which is always my way to eat it. :) or add noodles to it. (both optional)
I promise this recipe will not disappoint! I hope you enjoy making it as much as I do and if you do tag me on Instagram (@Idashly) I'd love to see what you create! I love making recipes that my mom taught me to make because it is something that will always be with me from her and I can pass down to my family.
Now, What have you inherited from your mom that you're proud to share? Leave a comment down below! I'd love to hear your favorite recipe. :)
