My Aunt made this soup for us a few years ago and it has been a hit with my family ever since. I could probably eat this soup for the rest of my life. This soup is so easy to make – as are most soups, but I really like this one for its fresh flavour. The last time I made it I put in waaay too many limes (I actually cut them up and cooked them in the soup) not a good idea, the soup will end up being bitter. I can’t belive how hard it is to take a photo of a bowl of soup! this was the best one of about 20. So here it is!
Combine the following, bring to a boil and simmer on low-med for an hour
6 cups chicken broth (I used 2 – 900ml tetra packs)
1 onion cut into quarters
1 cup fresh parsley
1/2 tbsp thyme
2 chicken breasts cubed
2 celery stalks – chopped (leave in big chunks)
2 tbsp salt (I leave this out because the broth has enough)
Next: (the tedious part)
Remove the chicken pieces. Strain the broth and discard the veggies.
In another pan saute in 2 tbsp oil:
1 chopped green pepper
1 chopped onion
Add to the strained broth:
2 tomatos chopped
2 tbsp fresh parsley chopped
the cooked chicked
Juice of 2 fresh limes
1/2 tbsp pepper
Sauteed onions and green peppers
Simmer for another 20 minutes. You can add lime slices when ready to serve (may be too much lime though) Serve over crunched tortilla chips. ENJOY!
