Mexican Chicken and Lime Soup (Sopa De Pollo)

We recently stopped by a local Mexican restaurant and I decided to branch out a bit from my usual shrimp tacos or taco salad. Boy am I glad I did! I ordered their 'Sopa De Pollo' and was pleasantly surprised with the amount of flavor from this relatively healthy Mexican style chicken and rice soup. I had to figure out how to recreate it at home...

Sopa De Pollo - Mexican Chicken Soup

Mexican Chicken and Lime Soup (Sopa De Pollo)

1 Rotisserie Chicken (pick chicken from the rotisserie and shred)

1 quart of Chicken Broth

2 Jalepenos, chopped

1 Yellow Onion, chopped

½ cup chopped fresh cilantro

Juice of 2-3 Limes, 1 extra lime (slices for serving)

1 Hass Avocado, chopped

1 large Tomato, chopped

Salt and Pepper

3 stalks of Celery, chopped

1 ½ packs of Chicken flavored Uncle Ben’s 90 second rice

In a pot, add shredded chicken, broth, rice, and celery. Let the ingredients come to a boil then sit on low for 20-30 minutes. While the soup is cooking, mix the ingredients for the ‘pico de gallo’. Add the jalepenos, yellow onion, cilantro, lime juice, tomato, and salt and pepper into a small bowl and mix.

Also, have your chopped avocado in a seperate small bowl prepared for when the soup is done.

After the soup is done cooking, spoon into a bowl and top with pico de gallo and some chunks of avocado and serve! It is absolutely delicious… Words can’t describe.
