I can't believe I haven't commented sooner! My husband stumbled across this recipe about a year ago when looking for hearty soups to make when I was sick. I am so glad he did! We add extra chicken, tomatoes, avocados, and green onions when we are having it as a main course. I do leave out the jalapenos though. What a great comfort food!!

The first time I ever had lime soup was at a Mayan village on a trip to Chichen Itza in Mexico. This recipe wasn't quite the same, but it is very, very good. I scaled it down for two people and used 1/3 cup of garlic roasted salsa instead of fresh tomato. Thanks for posting!
