The thing I love most about soup is the fact that it takes a few minutes to chop up a bunch of ingredients, toss them into a pot, and forget about it for an hour. Dinner doesn’t get simpler, healthier, or yummier!

After an hour of simmering, you shred up the chicken with two forks. Toss it back in the soup with a handful of cilantro and you’re ready to dish up and eat!

We put on some soft music and served our soup with a generous dollop of sour cream and a gorgeous fresh avocado on the side.

It took me right back to September 2014. Cody and I spent a weekend in Miami and had dinner one night at a little Mexican place on Española Way. I love how food has the power to completely transport you.
