Chipotle Chicken & Vegetable Soup
Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add onion and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, 2 to 3 minutes. Add chipotles, cumin and allspice; cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add broth and chicken. Cover, increase heat to high and bring to a simmer. Uncover and cook, turning the chicken occasionally, until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part without touching bone registers 165 degrees F, 20 to 22 minutes. Skim any foam from the surface as the chicken cooks. Transfer the chicken to a clean cutting board. When cool enough to handle, remove the meat from the bones and shred.Advertisement
Meanwhile, add corn, zucchini and tomatoes to the pot; return to a simmer. Cook until the vegetables are tender, 4 to 10 minutes. Stir in the shredded chicken, salt, pepper and rice and cook until heated through, about 3 minutes more. Remove from heat and stir in lime juice to taste.
To make ahead: Cover and refrigerate, without the rice and lime juice, for up to 3 days. To serve, stir in rice and reheat, then stir in lime juice.
