This is optional, but advisable. Place the chicken carcass in a crockpot and submerge in water. Cook overnight on high, then strain. This makes a nice, simple chicken stock that you can use instead of the 5 cups water.

3

Dice onion. Sautee onion until tender in a sauce pot. You'll need at least 5 cups of capacity here to finish the soup.

The soup is great, but I love the garnishes. I serve this with cilantro, shredded cabbage, lime wedges, and oregano. Maybe some chicharones if you're feeling crazy.
