Chicken Lime soup is a fantastic addition to Soup Sunday with a Taco Tuesday twist! Fresh limes paired with Mexican spices and the light taste of citrus, make this a soup that takes under 30 minutes and tastes just a good the next day.
Other Mexican recipes totally worth trying on Salty Side Dish are Mexican Chicken Chili, Mexican Chicken Casserole, Mexican Ground Beef Casserole, Mexican Cornbread Casserole and Mexican Corn dip. As you can tell, my family loves a good Mexican recipe night!!
This chicken lime soup is so good and really light.
There are no heavy creams and its not thick, so its super easy to eat and enjoy even a second bowl. The lime flavor isn’t overpowering but it was there and you can certainly add lots more limes if you want to. Plus Mexican soups like this are so easily customizable with adding fresh cilantro, tons of chopped avocado and a scoop of sour cream.
Lime soup is also easily servable and just as delicious if you put some crunchy tortilla chips on top or even scoop up some of the chicken with tortillas (that’s what we do). In under 30 minutes you can be enjoying this delicious, flavorful soup! Let’s get started on the menu:
