You could also make
Caldo de Pollo
with chicken legs in much the same fashion, you'd just have to adjust cook times down to about 10 minutes for bone-in legs.
Bone-in beef shank can be used too to keep this caldo de res recipe more traditional - it just may be difficult to find!
The hardest part of this recipe for me was cutting the corn cobs into 1-2 inch pieces. I got it done, but I might use the larger, frozen corn ears next time and save myself some trouble.
Never heard of a chayote squash? You cansub zucchini if you have a hard time finding some, just don't cook it under pressure. Let it steam at the end.
