Lime Soup

One more before bedtime!

Lime Soup is what I order when we're down in Mexico. Of course there are probably many, many ways to make it, probably even an authentic one, but this is my own creation... kind of! ... it's based on my fave, Southwest Chicken Soup.

Sopa de Lima- Lime Soup (serves 4)
1 jar roasted red salsa (I used Arriba!)
1 rotisseried chicken or cooked chicken breasts, deboned and shredded
1 tbsp cumin
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
6 cups chicken broth
4 limes, juiced + 1 more for garnish, cut into wedges
kosher salt to taste
4 cilantro sprigs, plus more for garnish
4 tbsp sour cream, for garnish

In a large saucepan, heat salsa over med hi heat. Add chicken and cumin and combine. Cook until chicken is warmed, stirring. Add beans and broth. Bring to a boil. Cook 10 minutes or until heated through. Stir in lime juice and add sprigs of cilantro. Salt to taste- may not need any depending on broth. Serve topped with sour cream, cilantro and a lime wedge. 
Oh, and a margarita! Let's hit the beach!
