Soup NIght Edition #3: Mexican Chicken Lime Soup

Mmm, If you were at the second soup night, you probably know how GOOD this soup is! I asked Lauren for the recipe, and here's what she gave me...

Ingredients needed:
  • 2 TBS olive oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 6 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 5 skinless, boneless chicken thighs, cut into pieces
  • 2 canned chipotle chiles in adobo sauce, plus 2 TBS of adobo sauce (I don't add all of this, add according to your spice tolerance)
  • 6 cups chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • juice of 2 limes
  • salt and pepper
  • avocado
  • tortilla chips
  1. In a large saucepan heat olive oil over medium heat.
  2. Stir in onion and garlic. Cook till onions begin to brown.
  3. Add the chicken. Cook till chicken is fully cooked.
  4. Add the peppers and adobo sauce and chicken broth.
  5. Lower the heat and let simmer for about 15 min. If there is any foam that comes to the top, scoop it off.
  6. A few min. before you serve, add the lime juice, salt and pepper to taste, and cilantro. Once you serve put avocado and chips on top.
Now doesn't that sound like the perfect way to warm up on this freezing cold, post-blizzard day? Enjoy!
