Crock-Pot Sopa de Ajo

This is the chicken soup of our collective childhood consciousness on steroids. Aside from the fact that it's perfumed with more than 40 cloves of garlic, pinches of saffron, cumin, cayenne, and paprika, it is topped with a poached egg, which, when pierced, leaks its golden yolk into the soup's depths. It's almost magical, and is virtually guaranteed to cure that cold of yours in no time at all. — Claire Bullen

I do love the combination of flavors, spicy kicks of chili powder, green chiles, and enchilada sauce, with smoky cumin, slow-cooked chicken, and hearty diced tomatoes. Delicious! — Megan Watson
