Columbian Chicken and Potato Soup


It’s Seriously Soup day today, featuring one of my favorite bloggers, Serena, who authors a blog called Seriously Soupy.  Serena started Seriously Soupy as a creative outlet for herself after her first daughter was born, which combined her passion for cooking with an interest in learning more about soups and soup making.  Since it started, she has given soup tours and taught soup classes and has a catalog of over 100 soups on the site!  You can join Serena on her Soupy journey at and twice a month you can find her here, at My Judy the Foodie, sharing her wisdom and helping demystify the world of soup.

Here’s what Serena has to say:

A few months ago I learned about some soups from South America and was excited to learn about locro, sopa de sorrel and Ajiaco Bogotano – a chicken and potato Soup from Columbia. Considered Colombia’s national dish, I discovered another recipe for chicken and potato soup in the January 2011 edition of Real Simple magazine that included corn, lime juice, celery and potatoes. Topped with avocado and cilantro (optional), this delicious comfort food was also an easy and quick soup to prepare that used minimal spices (lime, oregano, salt, and pepper).

This recipe is great variation on the chicken soup and one that will have you wanting more. Enjoy!



Have you made any soups inspired by other countries?
