How to make it

  • Season the chicken with salt and pepper.
  • Heat the olive oil in a large, heavy pot over medium-high heat.
  • Stir in the onion, garlic, and aji; cook until the onion has softened, about 1 minute.
  • Add the chicken, and continue to cook for 5 minutes.
  • Stir in the cilantro and cook for 1 minute.
  • At this point you may wish to shred the chicken or cut it into bite size pieces. (Thighs and drumsticks make for a nice presentation whole)
  • Pour in the chicken broth, potatoes, (carrot if you used it) and rice.
  • Add cumin.
  • Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer until the potatoes are tender, about 30 minutes.

    When do you add the peas? And are they mashed into the broth?

    I love this soup. I had one almost like it in Ecuador, but made with iguana. Not my idea, a big surprise. Tasty, though.
