Mexican Chicken Lime Soup

You guys know I love Mexican food. Often Mexican food gets a bad rap as being unhealthy and bad for you. That doesn’t have to be the case. There are a ton of great options…you just have to make smart choices!

Cinco de Mayo is coming up soon so I thought I would share one of my favorite recipes ever – Mexican Chicken Lime Soup.

Am I the only person who goes to a Mexican restaurant and orders soup? Seriously I love this stuff. Long ago whenever we’d go out to dinner at our favorite Mexican place, I’d have it for dinner and then get a big to-go container so that I could have it as leftovers during the week too.

When I inquired how my restaurant made the soup, I was shocked at how easy it is to put together. After a few attempts, I came up with a delicious version with only a few ingredients. Now I don’t have to go to my favorite Mexican place, I just make a big pot and enjoy it at home whenever I want.

Thanks to Tyson Grilled & Ready Chicken, I can have the soup prepped in less than 10 minutes then it’s just a matter of letting it simmer. The Tyson Grilled & Ready Fajita Chicken Breast Strips are perfect for this recipe. They are already perfectly seasoned so all I have to do is just open the bag, chop the chicken and toss it in my soup.

Tyson Grilled and Ready line provides flavorful, fully cooked, all white meat chicken products. They are 98% fat free and contain no preservatives. See…easy and healthy! I told you it was possible.
