How to Hydrate Dried Peppers

Use plastic gloves to remove the stems of the peppers; shake peppers gently to remove seeds. Place peppers in small bowl. Add enough boiling water to cover peppers; let stand 15 min. or until peppers are softened. Drain, then use as directed.

Make Ahead

Sauce can be prepared ahead of time. Store in tightly covered container in refrigerator up to 2 days before using as directed. Or for longer storage, place in airtight container and freeze up to 1 month. Thaw in refrigerator before using.

How to Serve Soup

In many Hispanic countries, chicken soup is traditionally served with the whole chicken pieces. If desired, remove chicken from soup, shred or chop chicken and return to soup before serving. You can also cut the corn off the cob before serving, if desired.
