I love this soup at Chili’s. It is so light and delicious. I get it sometimes at lunch. I found the recipe for it and I am excited to make it. I am not a big cilantro fan, but can handle a hint of it in this soup. All the flavors mixed together make my mouth water. The pieces of avocado are my favorite . It is easy on the waistline too…a real winner (Or as my hubs says at random times, “winner winner chicken dinner!” I have no clue what it means but it sounds fitting for this dish).
2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil 1 onion, chopped 4 cloves fresh or roasted garlic, minced 80 oz chicken broth, 2 1/2 cartons of the 32 oz 10 oz can rotel tomatoes, mild 7 oz can diced green chilies 4 medium boneless skinless chicken breasts; cooked, shredded and lightly seasoned with salt and pepper 2 1/2 Cups cooked rice of choice 1/4 Cup fresh lime juice 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin Pinches of Kosher salt, fresh cracked black pepper and Lawry’s Garlic Salt with Parsley to taste 1 bunch of fresh cilantro, chopped Fresh diced avocados, drizzled with lime juice 1 Cup shredded cheddar cheese Tortilla chips
1. Place oil into a large dutch oven over medium heat. Saute onion for 5 minutes then add in garlic; cook for 1 minute. Stir in chicken broth, tomatoes, green chilies, chicken breast, rice, lime juice and seasonings. Cook for 5 minutes; taste and season according to your liking. Right before serving add chopped cilantro.
2. Serve soup with fresh diced avocado, shredded cheese and crushed chips if desired. Makes 10-12 servings.
I have been craving this Strawberry Pretzel Salad. I just love it! I have noticed it highlighted on other blogs lately. I guess it is that time of year when everyone is craving rich, strawberry goodness! I think I will make it next week with the strawberries I put in the freezer. Yum!
The foodie’s photo this week is not food related, but I could not resist posting the photo of his first swim of the year. Bless his little heart!
Celebrating and decorating with purpose is my favorite thing to do. When I am not filling a tree with ornaments or throwing a birthday party for my golden doodle, I am being mom to a super cool tween son, the wife to a fine blue eyed man and selling real estate. I call northeast Arkansas home and when I am not loving on my people or celebrating in our space, I am using words to express myself here or on my podcast. Be sure to follow me!
