Homemade African Chicken Pepper Soup Broth

Pepper is the sole constant; everything else in this soup is open to variation.

Adjust pepper for personal taste, add extra for heat lovers.

In Cameroon, Njansa spices up soup with its nutty flavor, mystifying those trying it for the first time in soups or stews.

Njansa isn't essential, but it enhances flavor and thickens soups. I use it when available, as it's not easily found in local supermarkets.
