You Like Potato, I like Potahto, Let's Call the Whole Thing Off

This was a quick Mexican Chicken Soup with leftover chicken and vegetables.  My one tip for really boosting the flavor on already amazing broths is to add what everyone calls salsa but my sister wants to keep calling hot sauce, because that's what we called it growing up at home and at our parent's restaurant.  You would get chips and hot sauce, not chips and salsa.  And I agree.  I actually don't like the word salsa, how it sounds.  Reminds me of Fresno and how all the kids there made me to feel like some sort of mutant breed coming from the midwest and having a slight hick accent.  In the same vein I hate the word soda and felt I was forced to change from calling it pop when I moved to California from Indiana.  A heaping dollop of homemade, in this case, tomatillo hot sauce added to the soup with some fresh cilantro and avocado really takes it to wow.
