    Very good. Omitted jalapeño, used a can of rotel for the tomatoes. Chipotle chili pepper is a must. Served with a scoop of sour cream and a scoop of puréed avocado. Will be adding this to my regular rotation, thank you!!!

  2. Can I use a rotisserie chicken or do you think it would overcook it? I want to make this for a work pot luck so I won’t have the chance to shred the chicken! Any thoughts?

    1. If you use rotisserie, I wouldn’t add it until the end, closer to serving time to avoid over cookingit! you could bring it, pre shredded, in a container and just stir it in about 20 minutes before the pot luck.

    I make this often! It’s full of flavor and a “go to” when I need something easy to eat for a few days!

    Love this easy and healthy soup! Love anything with lime – this hits the spot more than traditional chicken soup for me!

  5. um DELISH! we made this in the instapot for a week day dinner – ours does not have the soup feature so we did 30 minutes on high pressure cook – the chicken shredded with the touch of a fork. Thank you for this recipe! It makes whole 30 so much more fun!
