Caldo de pollo, a comforting chicken and vegetable soup.Christina Holmes

Multiplied to use 4 or 5 chickens, this simple soup can feed the whole village family at Yo'on Ixim. Using all parts of a large pollo ranchero contributes to the flavor of this soup, so don't be afraid to cut up and add the chicken's backbone, organ meats, and feet. Each season offers different vegetables, but the mainstay for this southern Chiapas soup is chayote, an edible gourd, as well as tomatoes and onions.
