  • 1lb chicken breast (500g)
  • 1 tablespoon oil/
  • 1 onion (diced)
  • 2 celery stalks (diced)
  • 2 cans diced tomatoes (400g/14oz)
  • 2 jalapeño peppers (seeds removed and finely diced)
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 8 cups chicken broth
  • 1 lime (juice)
  • ½ cup fresh cilantro (roughly chopped)
  • to taste salt/pepper
  • to taste sour cream
  • to taste avocado (sliced)


  • Start by sautéing the onion and celery in oil, in a large pot until soft, about 10 minutes.
  • Chuck everything else in the pot [except cilantro], bring to a boil and then allow to simmer for 45 minutes. Soup, eh? Gotta love it!
  • After 45 minutes, remove the chicken and shred it up with two forks! Throw it back in the pot, along with the fresh cilantro.
  • Do a little taste test and add salt/pepper if needed.
  • Serve up the soup with a generous dollop of sour cream. Fresh avocado on the side makes it extra delicious!


Tips and Tricks:
1. We like to add a dash of our favorite hot sauce at the end.
2. If you diet allows corn, add a cup of sweet corn kernels in the beginning.
