Learn How to Make This Easy & Healthy Chicken, lime & Avocado soup!

Hey! It’s been a long while since I’ve posted on my blog but I wanted to jump on and share one of my absolute  favorite soups for the winter time with you.  I make this soup every winter, multiple times a season and still can’t get enough of it. If I didn’t live in Arizona, I’d be eating this all year long. Ha ha.

What you’ll need:

  • Chicken breast
  • Chicken broth
  • Lime juice (store bought or fresh. It doesn’t matter)
  • Olive oil
  • Tomatoes
  • Jalapeños
  • Green onions
  • Cilantro
  • Garlic
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Cumin

Optional toppings:

  • Avocados
  • More green onions
  • More cilantro
  • Shredded cheese
  • Sour cream (or plain Greek yogurt for a healthier substitute. You can’t even taste the difference, I promise!)

I didn’t put a specific measurement for any of it because it’s all up to your taste.

Step 1:

  • Chop up the jalpeno (remove the seeds if you don’t want it to be too spicy) green onions, tomatoes & cilantro.
  • Dice up the chicken.

I didn’t do it this way first because apparently I like to do things the hard way. Ha ha. 

Step 2:

  • Turn the pot onto medium-high heat.
  • Pour about a tablespoon of olive oil in.
  • Mix in the jalpeno & green onions and sautée until tender.(around 2-3 minutes).
  • Add in the garlic at the last 30 seconds so it doesn’t burn.

Step 3:

  • Add in the diced tomatoes, chicken & chicken broth. (I used 2 cans to make my desired amount of soup).
  • Add the lime juice (I put 2 1/2 tablespoons in because I LOVE lime. But, if you’re not as into it, I recommend 1 1/2 tablespoons.)
  • Add all your seasonings. (Salt, pepper & cumin).

Step 4:

  • Bring the soup to a boil.
  • Once boiling, reduce heat to medium, cover & let it simmer until the chicken is cooked through.

Step 5:

  • Add in the cilantro.
  • Cook for another 1-2 minutes.

Step 6:

  • Add all your toppings and enjoy!!

Now wasn’t that easy?! That’s exactly why I love it!!

Let me know if you end up making this soup and how you like it!!

Until next time!
