Mexican Chicken Soup

I'm almost out of my Passover stash of real chicken soup. Freezing the broth, I know I can transform it cross culturally. Today, I add white rice and shredded poached chicken breast to the stock. What makes it Mexican? The little plate of condiments on the side; diced avocado, tomato, sweet onion, jalapeno with chopped cilantro and a squeeze of lime. It is a great way to change up the Friday night starter course. Why not? It's fun!
