from Ellen Burr – Los Angeles, CA


  • (2) 24 ounce jars Manischewitz® Matzo Ball Soup
  • 4 scallions, trimmed and chopped
  • 1 small bunch cilantro-stems snipped, leaves reserved
  • 1 pound Kosher chicken breast filets, cut into small pieces
  • 1 teaspoon, ground pico de gallo (or pure chili powder) - to taste
  • 2 limes, halved
  • 1 avocado, peeled, pitted and cubed
  • 1 tomato, peeled, seeded and chopped
  • Salt - to taste


Drain the broth from the soup jars into a 3-quart non-reactive saucepan. Reserve matzo balls and solids. Add the scallions and snipped cilantro stems. Bring to a boil over high heat, add the chicken dusted with the pico de gallo, lower heat and simmer 4 minutes or until chicken whitens. Add the reserved matzo balls and solids, the juice of 1 1/2 limes, the avocado cubes and chopped tomato. Simmer 5 minutes or until hot. Add Kosher salt to taste. Sprinkle with the reserved cilantro leaves and garnish with the remaining lime half, cut into thin wedges. Serve hot.
