This is a recipe I've modified, originally from Allrecipes.com. I usually make it on the mild side for the kids, then DH and I spice it up. Don't skimp on the garnishes!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large saucepan over medium heat, sautee onion and garlic in oil until translucent, about 4-5 minutes.
  2. Stir in chicken and brown, then add stock, lime juice, Ro-Tel (with juice), salt and pepper. Gently simmer until chicken is cooked, 3-5 minutes. Stir in avocado and cilantro and heat through, and adjust seasonings to taste.
  3. (If you wish to thicken the soup a bit, use an immersion blender or mash some of the avocado by hand. You can also add potato flakes if you want a thicker broth.).
  4. Ladle soup into bowls and garnish with a dollop of sour cream and cheddar cheese, a sprinkle of additional cilantro, with lime wedge and tortilla chips on the side. Enjoy!

This was exceptional! Love the fresh flavors and the tanginess of the lime. For me, the cilantro was the crowning touch

Easy and tasty. I always get the bag of avocados at costco and sometimes can't use them all. This is a great way to use up 2 avocados. You really don't need cheese or sour cream - it's good as is. I used the Mild Rotel tomatoes and adjusted the spiciness with fresh ground black pepper. I was afraid it wouldn't be spicy enough, but it was perfect. Made some fresh whole wheat biscuits to go with it. This soup is a keeper.

One of the local Mexican restaurants here makes my favorite soup (Yucatan Chicken Lime soup) and I've been searching everywhere for a similar recipe. I made this last night and I swear it's gotta be the same recipe! The only difference is that they use shredded chicken, but this soup literally makes my mouth water. It's delicious and it will be a staple of mine from now on! I added a couple slices of jalapenos to give it a little extra "kick." Excellent recipe!
