La Hacienda Mexican Chicken Soup

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by kyle the whale

I had been going to this Mexican restaurant, "La Hacienda," forever. I always ordered the huge bowl of chicken soup. I was shocked to hear that they were closing the restaurant, so I had to make my own makeshift version of the authentic classic. Enjoy!

  1. In a large pot, add everything but the rice and limes. Cook on high heat, bringing the soup to a boil for about 30 minutes.
  2. Turn the heat down to low and simmer; add the rice and stir as little as possible until you're ready to eat.
  3. Optional: add avocado chunks into the soup and stir.
  4. Enjoy! When ready to eat, serve the soup with juiced lime wedges. The juice adds a good flavor to the soup! =).
