  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!

very delicious ~ I used my own chicken stock vs boullion . I used precooked chicken so it was super fast and great. Thank you for posting this :)

Simple but full of flavor! Right before eating I added some crushed tortilla chips to each bowl. Thanks for sharing your recipe!

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.

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.
