This is absolutely DELICIOUS!!!
8 cloves garlic, thinly sliced (I used minced garlic)
4 fresh jalapeno peppers, sliced (or diced green chiles to cut the spice down)
8 ounces skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - cut into thin strips (rotisserie chicken works, too)
1 quart chicken broth
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
1 tomato, seeded and diced
salt and pepper to taste
1 avocado - peeled, pitted and diced
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1.In a large saucepan over medium heat, put all ingredients together and simmer for 20 minutes until hot.
2.Ladle soup into bowls and sprinkle with tortilla strips to serve.
My notes: I bought the lime tortilla chips to go with this and it's awesome. The 1st time I made this, I made the mistake of not using fresh lime juice and I couldn't really taste the lime. Very disappointing! I highly recommend squeezing fresh limes in it and also on top before you serve it. :) It makes all the difference in the world. I also sprinkle cilantro on top, too. I love love LOVE all things avocado so I used TWO last time and it was amazing! I also snuck in some carrots just because I could. :) Could be served with or without long grain rice.
This recipe is adapted from HERE! I just simplified it to our tastes.
