Yucatan Lime Soup

I found this recipe on Pinterest (originally from this website: and made it last week. It is seriously some of the best soup I've ever had! I haven't calculated the nutrition information just yet, but looking at the ingredients, it can't be bad for you at all! Y'all should definitely try it! (This made enough for my husband and I to eat for two nights with a little left over.) *For some reason when I post this it's all squished together. Sorry if it looks funky.

Yucatan Lime Soup
2 tbsp olive oil
1-2 chicken breasts, cut into cubes
1 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup white onions, finely chopped
1 tsp essence (2 tbsp paprika, 2 tbsp salt, 2 tbsp garlic powder, 1 tbsp pepper, 1 tbsp onion powder, 1 tbsp cayenne pepper, 1 tbsp oregano, 1 tbsp thyme)
1 tbsp minced garlic
1 cup seeded chopped tomatoes (or 2 cans diced tomatoes)
1 jalepeno, chopped with seeds removed
1 1/2 boxes of chicken stock (4 cups)
the juice of two limes
2 cans of black beans, rinsed
1 avocado, diced (for topping)
*****Season the chicken with cumin and salt. In a large pot, saute the onions, essence, and 1/4 tsp salt in 2 tbsp olive oil. Add the cubed chicken, garlic, tomatoes, and jalepeno. I added more olive oil to moisten the mixture. Saute this mixture for about three minutes. Add the chicken stock, lime juice, and black beans. Simmer for 10-15 minutes then serve. We topped our soup with diced avocadoes and chopped cilantro and ate it with corn tortillas. Adding shredded cheease to the top would be tasty, too.
