I can't thank you enough for posting this recipe. I had a recipe which was extremely similar to this which I copied out of a cookbook when I was in high school. The recipe made it through several moves to different apartments. I made it for my now-husband when we had just started dating, and he loved it. My husband doesn't get excited about very much at all, but he loved this soup. Well after getting married and moving to our first apartment together, I found I had lost the recipe! I've been hunting for it online ever since. The only major difference is the addition of green bell pepper. And the onion, garlic, peppers (both the bell peppers and the two serranos I used for the "green chilies") get sauteed in vegetable oil after cooking the chicken in stock. Then I add the stock back in, add the tomatoes, shredded chicken, and all the seasonings (which- I love this blend of flavors- super bright citrus but underneath that is a very full-flavor broth!) I made a batch and a half, remembering how quickly we went through this soup- and it just barely fit in my large stockpot. It did need more lime juice than the recipe calls for- not sure how much I used, but after juicing 9 limes I just got out the squeeze bottle of lime juice- and a little bit more salt. This is a winner and so happy to have found it again- THANK YOU!!
