Mexican Chicken Lime Soup


If there is one thing I absolutely adore, it is bowl of flavorful soup!  This Mexican Chicken Lime Soup was just that, and full of intoxicating flavors that tickled my tongue. It is a Rachel Ray recipe, but I never may have found it if it weren't for Pinterest.

Follow Me on Pinterest

Pinterest lets you organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web, by "pinning" them onto your own page of web boards that you can name in any categories that you desire.  I have many such boards, and many are food related.  I also have boards for wedding plan ideas for my daughter's spring wedding,  DIY projects that look interesting and a board for crafts I might actually make. I even have a board for things I see that make me smile. After you download a special "pin it" button in your internet explorer's favorites, you can use that link to pin a photo from almost any web site, and it will have the link to the website where you found it.  Any time you wish to return to that web site you click on the photo on your board.  You can also see other Pinterest boards and get ideas from them and repin their pins on your board. I found the Mexican Chicken Lime Soup while scanning the "Everything" Pinterest stream and pinned it to my "Soup" board. I'm glad I tried it! For more information about Pinterest click here

As a person who always loved to rip out recipes that I wanted to try from countless magazine over the years, Pinterest now allows me to virtually do the same for web recipes.   One warning: Pinterest can be very addicting! If you do join Pinterest, or have already joined, I hope you become my follower as I will follow back.

I love to see what everyone is pinning!



Now the recipe for Rachel Rays delicious Mexican Chicken Lime Soup with the modifications that I added written in red:

Ingredients:

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

1 onion, finely chopped

6 cloves garlic, thinly sliced

6 skinless, boneless chicken thighs, cut into 1/2-inch pieces - I used chicken breasts

2 canned chipotle chiles in adobo sauce, finely chopped, plus 2 tablespoons adobo sauce

6 cups chicken broth

I added I package of frozen corn

1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro

Juice of 2 limes

Salt and pepper

1 hass avocado, thinly sliced lengthwise into 12 pieces

Crushed tortilla chips

Sour cream

Directions:

1.In a large saucepan, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Stir in the onion and garlic, lower the heat to medium and cook until the onion begins to brown, about 7 minutes. Increase the heat to high, push the vegetables to the side of the pan, add the chicken and cook, stirring, until golden, about 5 minutes. Stir in the chipotles and adobo sauce, then stir in the chicken broth. Lower the heat and simmer for 15 minutes, skimming any foam. Stir in the cilantro and lime juice; season with salt and pepper.

2.Place 2 avocado slices in each of 6 soup bowls and pour in the soup. Top with the tortilla chips. I also added a dollop of sour cream to each serving.




Quick, easy, flavorful!  My kind of soup!

Hmmmm, that does look delicious. I'd have to grind everything up except for the corn and chicken. Don't mind me and my texture issues. I'm so glad that we are allowed a cup of soup daily. This could well be our next one.

Pinterest intrigues me except that I am not able to join not having a Facebook account or a Twitter account. Oh well. I tried.

I put in an invite on Pinterest and when I join I'll be sure to ask for your friendship. Looks like a fun place. That soup looks delicious and Rachel Ray's recipes are usually very reliable. I think I like the few changes you made too.

The soup sounds great for these cool couple days we have coming up Pat:@)

Yvette said...

Pat, my daughter invited me to join Pinterest, but I'm still mulling it over. I'm just afraid I won't get the hang of the thing.

I'd love to have a place to gather all my favorite photos and ideas though...

Maybe I'll give it a try. I have to stop being chicken. :)

The soup looks great!

steviewren said...

Pat, your Pinterest board is huge! You must have been collecting for quite a while. I haven't joined yet, but I try to scroll through fairly often. I found a yummy recipe for savory breakfast muffins on there.

I just finished a bowl of yummy 15 bean soup that I made last weekend. I seasoned it with cumin and garlic and added chicken breasts, chicken sausage and wild rice.

Yvonne @ StoneGable said...

Pat, your Mexican Chicken Lime Soup is wonderful... anything that has those fabulous mexican flavors makes me swoon!
I'm making this one for sure.
I would be thrilled if you joined me for ON THE MENU MONDAY and shared this great soup! Linky is up at 8:00 on Sunday evening.
YUMMY!

Pinterest is addictive and so inspiring!

Lovella ♥ said...

OH I am enjoying Pinterest as well. It is my last stop of the day. .when the only energy I have left is to browse. I think the thing I love most about it is just the sheer beauty of the photography.
It is so fun to see what you enjoy on your board.

Ciao Chow Linda said...

Well it seems like soup weather has descended on us very quickly and this soup looks really great. Pinterest sounds like something I could use since I'm always seeing recipes I want to try, and then forget where they are. I'm going to try to figure out how to use it and if I can't, I may be emailing you.

Our part of the Mohave Desert is finally moving into Fall weather so I can`t wait to try your recipe. I like the changes you made. Just what I would do. I will check out Pinterest.

Tanna at The Brick Street Bungalow said...

"down here" this is referred to as Tortilla Soup. LOL! It is one of my all time favorite soups. I will have to give Rachel Ray's version a try. Her recipes always have a nice fresh edge to them.

Glad you will be with your grands on Christmas, even if it means travelling. blessings ~ Tanna

Tracy said...

Oh, sooo DELICIOUS! My hubby will love this one! Thank you for sharing another wonderful recipe, Pat. I've not dipped much into Pinterest yet...I've feeling stretched a bit far online as it is at the moment, but who knows... LOL ;o) Happy Weekend ((HUGS))

Judy ~ My Front Porch said...

Love those Mexican-type soups! I'm going to try this.

As for Pinterest...I think I am really going to like it over there. I just signed on a few weeks ago...but not had a spare minute to get 'pinning'. One of these days!

Sheila said...

Your soup looks delicious! I made clam chowder in the crockpot yesterday and was thinking this morning that i should just keep the crockpot out on the counter for harvest. Pinterest sounds great- I'm off to see what it's all about. Thanks for the tip.

Snap said...

Sounds delicious and I love pinning! I don't know when to stop! ACK!!!!!!!

Oliag said...

I do love all your pinterest boards Pat! each and every one of them is fun to look at. I so rarely have time to do pinterest that I feel like I am not keeping up on my end of the bargain:) I do have fin when I a there though...

This soup looks and sounds delish! I love every flavor that it incorporates! Yay for Pinterest!

Houseelf said...

I can almost smell it!
Sorry I']ve taken a while to catch up with you Pat- It's been silly hours working to get everythign ready for Daughter to go to uni. She is all moved in and had a good 1st night. With Skype it feels like she is still here.

SavoringTime in the Kitchen said...

I'm so ready for a delicious bowl of soup and this one sounds wonderful. I just started pinning a short while ago. I love having the visual reminder of recipes I want to try. I'm now following you on Pinterest ;)

Vagabonde said...

That soup sounds delish. I looked at Pinterest - it looks interesting but I am trying not to join more sites as I spend so much time on the Internet just to keep up to date with my friends’ blogs and my own – plus I am not a techy. For example I used to be able to click on your pictures twice and they would fill my whole screen – now when I click I get a black background and they enlarge just a little, if I click again I get a slide show. I don’t know what I did to get this instead of your large pictures. Another thing – my blog has not changed since my daughter set it up for me in 2009 - I’d like to get it larger like your blog, but when I go into Blogger I have no idea what to do. So you see I am not techy at all.

Jenny said...

Pat, this sounds delicious! I'm avoiding 'pin'ing. I think I would have no time to pee if I started that! As it is...well...ummm... never mind.

This is a recipe I will try! Thank you for sharing.

CatHerder said...

Yum...I make mine just a little different...i put cumin in mine, and i roast corn on the grill and cut it off and throw it in.but everything else is pretty much the same...usually i serve it over arroz amarillo with fried plaintains on the side, with a dollop of fresh sour cream on top!

Shannon said...

I'm on a fall soup kick too, this looks perfect! (And I'm a Pinterest addict too, there needs to be more hours in the day for everything I want to do!)

Thanks for linking up with Friday Food on MomTrends.com!

Paz said...

This is my kind of soup, too. Thanks for sharing it with us.

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

That sounds so good! I add lime to a lot of my Mexican dishes now...it brings out the flavor! ♥

Annesphamily said...

Cooler weather is coming and this sounds wonderful. I love Mexican food so anything like this has got to be tasty. Take care Pat and thanks Anne

Claudia said...

Noting this for when autumn returns (it's 75-80 degrees - and continuing like that all week - that would be a yay!). But I am a sucker for some Mexican soup with lime.... Will check out Pinterest.
