Other Regions - Mexican


Quantity Measure Ingredients Description
1 Whole Lime (fresh)  
1 Teaspoon Lime Juice  
1/4 Teacup Chillies, Green Chopped - to taste
1/3 Teacup Onion Chopped
1 Teacup Chicken cooked and shredded
4 Teacup Chicken Stock - Chinese or Chicken broth
2 Tablespoon Cooking Oil  
4 Medium Tortilla Stale or left over


Heat oil in a large pan. Sauté the onion until translucent. Add chiles, broth, chicken, and tomatoes. Cover and simmer 20 minutes. Stir in lime juice and optionally salt and pepper. Pour into soup bowls and add tortilla cut in slices. Garnish with lime slice.

It is best to use tortillas that were rolled slightly thick for this recipe. If you use thin tortillas, fry them in a small amount of oil before adding to the soup.
