About the Recipe

  • This is one of the recipes that we like to make for its simplicity. Only the ingredients have to be chopped and cooked.
  • To make the stock you can use the chicken pieces that you want, even bones and skin.
  • If you want to prepare a low fat broth use skinless chicken breasts.
  • We give the recipe with pore because it gives more flavor to the stock, if you don’t find it use 1/2 onion.
  • Since the broth undergoes a slow cooking it lasts to be ready. But in this way all the flavor of the ingredients is obtained.

    Buy this ear of corn so your stock has the best flavor.

    These jalapeno peppers will give a very special hotness to your stock.

    To cook the stock you will need a large saucepan like the Excelsteel. The advantage of this saucepan is that it is very resistant because it is made of stainless steel and since its base is encapsulated it distributes better the heat.
