White Lightning Chicken Lime Chilli

White Lightning Chicken Lime Chilli

My friend brought over this soup right after I had one of my babies. It was absolutely delicious. And it wasn’t just because I was breastfeeding and wanted to eat everything in sight, or because I was so sleep deprived that my brain couldn’t function. No, I have made it several times since then and it is just as delicious as the first! This soup has since become one of my favorites with it’s rich creamy texture and hint of lime, topped with a handful of crushed tortilla chips. Perfection.

    Jamie- I don’t know if you still check this, but I have a quick question. I’m a little confused about when to add the cream and sour cream. It seems like the first part of the recipe was for how to cook on the stove, and then the second is in a slow cooker. This looks so yummy and I can’t wait to try it!

    Woah, not sure what happened there! Thanks for pointing that out, I fixed it now so hopefully it makes more sense 🙂 Life has been so busy since we’ve moved back so this blog has definitely taken the back burner, but I’m glad you still use some of the recipes! Hope you’re doing well!
