Chicken and Hominy Soup with Lime and Cilantro


This is how you eat soup when it's hot outside. I like to season the chicken with chili powder and cumin, then toss them in the turbo broiler.

  • 1 lime, juiced, or to taste

  1. Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat; stir cumin and paprika into hot oil until fragrant, about 1 minute.

Reduce heat and simmer until flavors have blended, about 15 minutes. Garnish soup with cilantro just before serving.
