Chicken Soup with Corn and Sweet Potatoes

0 17
Armed with a chicken, a pot, spices and vegetables, I am on a mission to get rid of this cold. A caring friend emailed her recipe for Chicken Posole, which I was very excited to make, only to I could not find any hominy in town. Inspired by her recipe I am experimenting with a new variation of chicken soup combining what I have on hand. This can be made stove top or in a slow cooker. One bowl and I feel better already….now that’s comfort food!
