With a fresh and spicy homemade broth and an array of colorful and crunchy toppings, here's a soup to warm up even the chilliest of evenings. This recipe uses a whole bird, making it not only a satisfying meal, but an economical one too. Starting with a cut up whole chicken helps prevent meat from overcooking. Ask your butcher to cut it into parts or follow our guide.

Cook's Notes

For a less spicy soup, remove the jalapeno seeds before using and add a few seeds back in at a time to taste. This recipe will make a little extra chicken than you need; use it up in a stir-fry or this quick quesadilla.
