There’s nothing like a hearty soup in middle of winter. A few of my other favorite main dish soups are Stuffed Pepper Soup, Turkey Chili Taco Soup, and Beef, Tomato and Acini Di Pepe Soup.

I spent the weekend with my cousin Katia and she put together this amazing soup. Made with a few simple ingredients she had on hand, it filled the kitchen with the aroma of comfort food.

  1. This was really good! I did saute the leeks and carrots first, and I used chicken broth instead of water. Other than that I made it as written. Will totally make this again!

  2. I’m cooking it right now and it smells wonderful. With the ingredients, the recipe reminds me so much of a Mexican stew known as Caldo. I used bone-in chicken thighs and boneless country style ribs, which I will remove the bone from the thighs and chop along with the country style ribs, after cooking. I will let you know how it tasted. Oh, I did not use any kind of alcohol.

  3. I omitted the alcohol and only used boneless skinless chicken thighs. Also added some crushed red pepper flakes and diced up a super ripe tomatoe. Yum!!!

  4. I made this tonight. I had to increase cooking time by 20 min to have everything cook through. I eliminated the brandy. Excellent flavor!! I would also like to know the servings in cups. Very difficult to divide by 8.

  5. This soup was yummy and much needed for a slight detox after holidays and work travel. I omitted the pork, added celery and added lemon juice to it. Delish!

    I also would like to know what size your servings turned out to be… I know it might be a little different depending on how much meat you have in the measurements…but it'll be pretty close. Is it 1 3/4 cup? BTW… I made this recipe with out the brandy or bay leaves (because I didn't have them on hand) and it was still VERY yummy! I would never have thought to use pork in a soup. LOVE IT! My family has loved all the recipes of your that I have prepared! Thank you!!! 🙂

  7. Made this soup tonight, it was amazing. Love you site, I've already made about 3 recipes and I LOVE that there are still so many good one. Also, best arroz con pollo recipe ever.

    Thanks!

  8. Could I use some of that Kahlua pork? I know it's smoked flavored, but I have lot left over from making it last Monday and though soup might be a nice way. What do you think?
