I have made this 4 times. It is my new favorite soup! I use 4-5 large chicken breasts. I also add the cumin. The recipe is so easy, now that I have done it a few times I can do w/o looking at the recipe. My favorite part is the fresh toppings, it makes the soup. Great for big get togethers...double recipe and make a bar w/the toppings. YUMMY!!!
Yummy tangy soup! We loved the lime in this. I cooked this in the crock pot, so skipped the oil. I also tripled the chilis and doubled the serranos (deseeded) and cooked them into it, but this didn't make it spicy. I also followed another reviewer and added cumin (2 tsp). I would double the chicken next time, so it is heartier, as it really only served 4. We topped the soup with baked tortilla chips and fresh corn, which paired well. I imagine you could also cook frozen corn into the soup as well. Great for lime lovers!
whoa!! this is delicious and im normally no soup lover. (it was the lime that sucked me in to try it :) ) Its spicy but the garnishes cool it and oh its addictive. Update: The day after, i simmered it again and not realizing how high my "simmer" was it reduced a lot..PERFECT for soft tacos :)
Wonderful soup! This is really similar to tortilla soup actually- just heavier on the lime, which I love! This was very well seasoned and reheated wonderfully. I did add 1/2 tsp of cumin which added just a hint of smoky flavor. I can't seem to cook Mexican food without some cumin! lol I used the canned chili's and canned tomatoes which made this come together even quicker. PERFECT for a weeknight- mine was a BUSY weeknight and I was thrilled that I had this to fall back on! Thanks so much Engrossed.
