Two words -- PHE-NOMENAL! This soup is so yummy, my husband even asked me to make it again the next night! I used some pre-cooked shredded chicken that I had in the freezer, so it was also quick and very easy! I used a little more lime than the recipe called for, so I also added a little bit of kosher salt to counteract the sweetness of the lime juice. The only thing I might change next time would be to put the avocados on the side instead of in the soup because they were soggy for leftovers, but otherwise this was a great meal. Thanks for sharing!
this was great and easy.i used to get get this at a restaurant in atlanta and tried to duplicate it once before i started cooking and was not successful.this was perfect and is my new chicken soup.atleast for summer.this only difference i made was to add mushrooms and different colored bell peppers.very pretty.
Delicious soup! I didn't change a thing and wouldn't change a thing. I love the flavor mix. I will double or triple this recipe next time.
