Mexican-style Chicken Lime Soup (Gluten-Free)

Celiac.com 12/03/2015 - Fall almost always gets me on a soupy kick, and I'm always on the hunt for recipes I haven't tried yet. This one is a winner. This simple, delicious style of chicken soup is commonly known in Mexico of soup as Sopa De Lima. This version blends chicken and stock with herbs, spices, onions, tomatoes, chili peppers, fresh cilantro, and plenty of lime juice, to deliver a delicious soup.

  • 8 cups chicken broth
  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 large red onion, quartered
  • 6 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • ½ teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 4 green onions, chopped
  • 1 large green chile pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 2 large tomatoes, peeled and chopped
  • 6 limes, juiced
  • ½ lime
  • ½ cup chopped fresh cilantro, for topping
  • ½ cup tortilla chips, for topping

Directions:
In a large pot, heat the chicken broth, chicken breasts, red onion, garlic, oregano, salt, pepper, and thyme until they begin to boil.

Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until the chicken breasts are cooked through, and the juices run clear, about 15 to 20 minutes.

Remove the cooked chicken to a cutting board. Let it cool a bit, then shred it down to smaller strips; return strips to the simmering pot.

Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook the green onions and green chile pepper in the hot oil until tender, about 3-5 minutes.

Stir the tomatoes into the mixture and continue cooking about 3-5 minutes until soft; pour the mixture into the pot with the chicken soup.

Season with the salt; return the soup to a simmer.

Add the lime juice and ½ a lime; cook another 8-10 minutes. Remove lime half.

Remove the pot from the heat.

Serve in bowls, topped with cilantro and tortilla chips.

It took me 20 years or more Barry so I wouldn't claim any great insight on this I had a 'eureka' moment, up until then I was walking around with multiple symptoms and not connecting any dots whatsoever. It is very, very difficult to diagnose and that's something that's reflected in so many of the experiences detailed here. A food diary may help in your case. It helped me to connect the gaps between eating and onset. It could help you to track any gluten sources should you go gluten free. It is possible for your reactions to change over time. As to whether its celiac, that's something you could explore with your doctor, stay on gluten if you choose to go that way. best of luck! Matt

I took Zoloft once. Loved it until it triggered microscopic colitis (colonoscopy diagnosed it). Lexapro did the same. However, I have a family member who is fiagnosed celiac and tolerates Celexa well.

Thanks for the update and welcome to the club you never wanted to join! ?

Jmg, I am glad you were able to come to the realisation that the culprit was in fact gluten. For me its not so simple. IBS runs in the family, as do several food intolerances. Its just in the last while that I can finally reach the conclusion that for me its gluten. The fact that it is a delayed effect-several hours after, made it harder. Friday I had some KFC, felt great. Saturday evening felt sleepy, Sunday felt awful and my belly was huge. I think I have gone from mildly sensitive to full blown celiac over the course of five years-if that possible. Thanks for all your help.

I thought I'd take a moment to provide an update, given how much lurking I've done on these forums the last year. It took a long time, but I've since had another gastroenterologist visit, many months of eating tons of bread, and an endoscopy where they took several biopsies. I have to say, the endoscopy was a super quick and efficient experience. During the procedure they let me know that it looked somewhat suspicious, causing them to take many biopsies, and then did comprehensive blood work. About a month later, I received a call telling me that the TTG came back positive a second time, and that the biopsies were a mix of negative (normal) results and some that were positive (showing blunting of the villi). As a result, I've been given a celiac diagnosis. It's been about a month now that I've been eating gluten free. Not sure if I'm really feeling all that different yet. It's a bit twisted to say, but in some way I was hoping for this diagnosis ? thinking how nice it would be to have an explanation, a plan of action, and feeling better. It's certainly no small change to be totally gluten free, but I'm hopeful.
