This is a very spicy, lime & cilantro flavored soup that I came up with because I like Lime & chili flavored Ramen soup. I can't believe I admitted this on a cooking site :) This is not a thick soup, it's very thin and very flavorful and is low in fat, it's a combination of several recipes I have seen. This will clear up your sinuses! Great for a fast lunch.

- 1 teaspoon soy sauce
- 1⁄2 lime, juice of
- 2 tablespoons tobasco chipotle hot sauce
- 1⁄2 cup pasta or 1⁄2 cup rice or 1⁄2 cup assorted cooked vegetables
- 1 -2 tablespoon cilantro
- salt and pepper
- Place chicken stock, soy sauce, lime juice and Tobasco in a small sauce pan and simmer over low heat approximately 5 minutes.
- Add the desired pasta or vegetables and simmer until heated through.
Great soup -- easy to make and tastes great. I needed to cut the sodium so left out the soy, used a lo-sodium chix stock and El Yucateco chipotle sauce. For pasta, I used the Spanish 'fideos'. It turned out surprisingly thick -- nice one Denise!
This was VERY easy to make, and had exactly the taste I was looking for! When I made it, I used shrimp and straw mushrooms (mirrored after a soup I had at a Thai restauant once). It was great!
