  1. Step 1

    In a blender, combine the stock, tomatoes, onion and garlic and blend until smooth.

  2. Step 2

    Heat the oil in a large heavy-based saucepan over medium heat. Add the Mexican seasoning and pasta and cook, stirring, for 2 mins or until aromatic and pasta is golden brown and toasted.

  3. Step 3

    Strain the tomato mixture into the pasta mixture and bring to a simmer. Add the chicken. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 mins or until the chicken is cooked through. Transfer chicken to a plate and use 2 forks to coarsely shred. Return chicken to the soup and stir in half the coriander.

  4. Step 4

    Divide the soup among serving bowls. Top with the avocado, fetta, chilli, if using, and remaining coriander. Season and serve with lime wedges.
