Lime Soup

What am I reading now?  Legacy (Molly Cochran)

Annnd . . . what do I think so far?  I jsut finished this story and am starting the second in the series, Poison. The good thing about coming late to this series is that they're all out! The last one is called Seduction.

Magic doesn't exist. Witches aren't real. But Katy can't believe this anymore because she knows she's a witch and so is everyone else in the small town where she goes to school. 

Stuck at a boarding school where her fellow students seem to despise her, Katy soon discovers that Whitfield is the place where her mother committed suicide under mysterious circumstances when Katy was just a small child. With dark forces converging on Whitfield, it's up to Katy to unravel her family's many secrets to save the boy she loves and the town itself from destruction.

Lime Soup
4 c chicken broth
2 c beef broth
2 bay leaves

1/2 c onion
1 Tablespoon minced garlic
1/2 c diced green chile

2 chicken breasts, cubed
1/4 teaspoon chile flakes
salt and pepper to taste

1 teaspoon cumin
1/4 c chopped fresh cilantro
1/4 c lime juice

3 ripe avocados, diced
3 roma tomatoes, diced
1 Tablespoons lime juice

Sour cream

Simmer first 3 ingredients while sweating onion, green chile and garlic in a small amount of oil. Add chicken and seasonings then fry for 5 minutes. Add all ingredients to the broth mixture and bring to a boil.

Chop the tomatoes and dice the avocado. Mix together with 1 Tablespoon of lime juice. Set aside.

To serve, remove bay leaves, ladle soup into bowls, top with 2 heaping tablespoons of avocado mixture and a dollop of sour cream. I like to serve the soup with warm, buttered four tortillas.

*Trying to get rid of some left over turkey or chicken? I've used those in this recipe instead and it's still great.
With sour cream, 
fresh avocado and tomato chunks, 
this soup is muy delish.

Ha! I LOVE that you pointed out the fact that all the books are out is a plus. I totally agree! I can't tell you how many times I've dropped a series because I've forgotten too much of the first book by the time the second one came out.

And thanks for the lime soup recipe. It does look delicious.
