Inka Mama's Aguadito de Pollo - Santa Ana

This is the aguadito de pollo that came with the lunch special at Inka Mama's. It's one of those soups that has everything going for it. Literally everything. Peas. Carrots. Onions. Garlic. Serrano chile. Potato. Rice. And of course, pieces of chicken and the lovely broth that carries its flavor.

I love this soup and soups like this, because no matter what culture you hail from, nothing comforts your soul and satisfies your gullet like a good soup. This one checked all the boxes: simple but well-seasoned, spicy but soothing, thin but hearty.

I'd tell you about the main course of chicharron de pollo (Peruvian crispy fried chicken strips) that came after the soup. It was served with scrumptious rice, a fried potato, and enough salsa criolla to make my breath lethal for the rest of the day, but it's the soup I'm thinking about as I write this. Funny how 40-degree weather does that.
