  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 recipe is amazing! Thank you!

Great tasting soup as written! Was worried that it may be too hot for mom, but she loved it as well! A spicy-citrusy sensation! Thanks for the submission!

This soup has ‘lime’ in its name for a reason!

Amazing as is

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