Mexican Chicken Soup with Tomatillos and Hominy

2 hours 1 hour active

For layers of flavor, we use both whole toasted coriander and cumin seeds for the broth, and ground spices sauteed in with the onions. The soup's heat hinged on the jalapenos. For more heat, use serranos or include the chilies' seeds. If you can’t find fresh tomatillos, you can substitute a can of tomatillos or diced tomatoes, drained. The broth and chicken can be made 1 day ahead and refrigerated separately before proceeding. However, shred the chicken while it's still warm. We liked garnishing the soup with chopped avocado, sliced jalapenos, crumbled queso fresco and fried tortilla strips.
