1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1 1 inch stick cinnamon
1 whole clove

Place the chicken breasts, water, garlic, onion, cilantro, and salt

the stock. Shred the chicken and set aside. Toast the cumin,

constantly. Add the rest of the chicken stock and pureed spices.
When the broth comes to a boil, add 2 of the sliced limes, the
chicken and the chicken livers. Cover and cook over medium heat
for 10 minutes. Correct the seasoning. To serve place a slice of
lime in the bottom of each bowl and cover with the hot soup. Pass
a plate of lime halves and avocado slices separately. If you like
add fried tortilla strips.
