The word “caldito” is actually in its literal New Mexican translation, a word for flattery. Yet, many New Mexicans often refer to “caldito” (the diminutive form of caldo) to mean “caldo” or broth. For our family however, a caldo or caldito, was much more than a broth. It was a comfort food. Time and again, entering the house on a cold, blustery, winter’s day or when we weren’t feeling all that well, our mother would prepare a simple soup of vegetables, a little meat, and spices, which melded together to create a savory broth that warmed us from the inside out. It also, had the power to comfort us and to make us feel safe. Even now, this “little broth” can take us back to those times. Try this version of “caldito” or “ little soup” for your family. It’s simple to make yet flavorful. If you find it a little too spicy for some members of the family, separate some for them before adding the chile.

This recipe is our spin on old-fashioned crispy fried chicken, without the excess fat. We use chicken thighs as they retain their moisture during cooking. The secret to the crispy texture of this chicken is its longer cooking time and placement in the oven. To prevent sticking, don’t forget to spray a non-stick pan generously with olive oil cooking spray. The addition of spices and yogurt contribute a zesty tang to this flavorful and nutritious dish.
