Spanish Chicken Soup

Cherry tomatoes, cilantro, corn, and kohlrabi take the place of carrots, dill, celery, and zucchini, while the spices here are more reminiscent of Mexican tacos. You can set this soup before bed to be ready for the morning, or set before you leave for work to be ready for when you get home at night. Enjoy it with some tortilla chips and guacamole for a complete meal.


  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 1 red onion, chopped
  • 5 cloves garlic, sliced
  • 1 kohlrabi, cubed
  • 1 19-oz (550-g) can corn, drained
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, whole
  • ⅓ cup chopped cilantro or 6 frozen cubes cilantro
  • 7 cups broth or 7 cups water, seasoned with chicken soup mix
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • ½ tsp chili powder
  • 1½ tsp oregano
  • ½ tsp cumin
  • 1½ tsp minced onion
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 Tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp sriracha (optional but highly recommended)
  • 6 boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • juice of 1 lime

Combine olive oil, onions, garlic, kohlrabi, corn, tomatoes, cilantro, broth, and seasonings in your Crock-Pot insert. Lay pargiyot on top. Cook on high for 8 hours, or overnight.

Remove pargiyot from the Crock-Pot and shred with two forks. Return to the pot and stir. Squeeze lime juice into the pot.

Serve topped with diced avocado, jalapeños, tortilla chips, and more lime juice!
