This is a pretty good recipe for Chicken Soup. However, I have lived in Mexico for the past 18 years and there is one thing that ruins this soup for me. Two teaspoons of cumin!! I could accept a dash of cumin, but with 2 teaspoons of cumin, it tastes like cumin soup with chicken added. I do not understand the idea that all Mexican food has to have cumin in it. I made this soup and invited Mexican friends to try it. Nobody would eat it. Everything else (the avocado, tortilla chips, even the cheddar cheese) which are not commonly found in Mexican chicken soup would have been very acceptable, if not welcome additions. Just NOT the cumin.
