Most people like soup in the fall or winter but I’m kind of weird – I like soup all year round. Here is a delicious Rachael Ray recipe that was very easy and has awesome flavor. I really enjoyed the tang of the lime and the heat of the chiles. I hope you enjoy it too!


  • 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
  • 2 canned chipotle chiles in adobo sauce, finely chopped, plus 2 tablespoons adobo sauce (Sidenote: The chiles were pretty spicy so you might want to reduce to one and then add more if you like)
  • 6 cups chicken broth
  • 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


  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.
  2. 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.
  3. Stir in the cilantro and lime juice; season with salt and pepper.
  4. Place 2 avocado slices in each of 6 soup bowls and pour in the soup. Top with the tortilla chips.

    Mmmm, sounds good. I would have to do without the chilies though!
