  1. Bring a small pot of water to a boil. Add chicken; boil until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center reads at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C), about 7 minutes. Drain.
  2. Run cool water over chicken to speed cooling process. Shred or finely slice chicken.
  3. Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add 1/2 onion, lime juice, 1/2 cup cilantro, jalapeno peppers, and garlic until onion is slightly greenish in color, about 5 minutes.
  4. Combine 4 cups water and bouillon powder in a small bowl. Pour into the pot. Let cook until just heated through, about 5 minutes. Stir chicken into the pot.
  5. Ladle soup into 4 bowls. Top with remaining 1/2 onion, 1/2 cup cilantro, avocado, and queso fresco.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Substitute Monterey Jack or mozzarella cheese for the queso fresco if preferred.

This is amazing. I'm not a big soup lover, but I will definitely be making this again. The flavors work so well together!

Amazing as is

Perfect! Next time I may top with a few tortilla chips for texture.

Best soup I have ever made! I stuck to the recipe. Good with or without the queso.

I love this soup so much, I just doubled the recipe for company. Unfortunately, plans have been postponed. Does anyone know if this will freeze?

Great recipe! Made it exactly as specified. My husband & I both enjoyed it.

I was very happy with this recipe. I made a few small changes, but mostly stuck to the directions here. Nice light and citrusy summer soup.

Thank you for sharing this recipe. Made exactly as written, no need for changes. This is so flavorful and is good hot or cold. This will go into my TNT collection.
