Iberostar's Lime Soup With Chicken Is a Ticket to Mexico (No Passport Required!)

The chefs at Iberostar Hotels & Resorts have created soup recipes that will transport you to Mexico! This hearty chicken soup is light and refreshing, combining spicy flavors with tart lime juice. 

You'll need:

  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1/2 white onion
  • 1 tomato
  • 1 deboned chicken breast
  • 3 limes
  • 4 corn tortilla
  • 1/2 yellow pepper
  • 1/2 green pepper
  • 1/2 red onion
  • 3 cilantro leaves
  • 1 tablespoon oregano
  • pinch of salt
  • pinch of pepper
  • vegetable oil for frying
  • 4 cups of chicken broth

Here's how to make it:

  1. In a large saucepan over medium heat, cook the chicken with the white onion and garlic cloves until browned. Season with salt.
  2. Cut two limes in half and roast the limes. Add lime juice from one lime to the chicken.
  3. Cut a lime in slices and set apart. Cut tortillas, peppers and red onion in a julienne style and set apart. Cut the tomato in a julienne style and remove seeds. Finely chop the garlic. Shred the chicken breast.
  4. Heat the vegetable oil over medium heat and add the red onion, peppers, garlic and tomatoes. When the mixture is lightly fried (some signs of browning), add the cilantro and chicken.
  5. Add 4 cups of chicken broth, juice of roasted lime and oregano. Once the soup begins to boil, reduce the intensity of the heat, cover the pan and let the soup boil for 5 more minutes for a better mixture of flavors. Garnish with lime slices.
