Make a Healthy Mexican Chicken Lime Soup Tonight

This soup is delicious and simple and has such a hearty flavor. Best of all it is under 500 calories and cooks up in 30 minutes.  This recipe will make 6 servings.

Here's how:
2 tablespoons olive oil, 1 finely chopped onion, 6 cloves garlic, thinly sliced, 6 boneless skinless chicken thighs, cut into 1/2 inch pieces, 2 canned chipotle chiles, chopped plus 2 tablespoons adobo sauce, 6 cups chicken stock, 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro, 2 limes, juiced, 1 avocado, thinly sliced lengthwise into 12 pieces, salt and pepper, crushed tortilla chips

In a large saucepan, heat the olive oil over medium-high.  Stir in the onion and garlic, lower the heat to medium and cook until the onion begins to brown, about 7 minutes.  Increase the heat to high and push the vegetables to the side of the pan.  Add the chicken and cook, stirring until golden, about 5 more minutes.  Stir in the chipotles and adobo sauce, then stir in the chicken stock.  Lower the heat to medium and simmer for 15 minutes, skimming off any foam.  Stir in the cilantro and lime juice, season with salt and pepper to your liking.  

Place 2 avocado slices in each of the 6 soup bowls, and top with the soup. Top with sour cream and garnish with the tortilla chops and enjoy!
