2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 large shallots, thinly sliced

Derived from Sancocho

1. Prick sweet potato a few times. Cook in a microwave on high 3 minutes, until partially cooked. Set aside to cool; peel and cut into 1/2 inch pieces.

2. Meanwhile, bring broth to a boil in a large stockpot; add chicken and simmer 15 to 20 minutes, until just cooked through. Remove chicken to a cutting board. Let cool, dice, then set aside. Discard bones.

3. In a small saucepan, heat oil and saute shallots and chile until soft, 3 minutes. Transfer to broth along with sweet potato, corn, and plantain; cook 10 minutes, until plantain is soft. Stir in coconut milk, tomatoes, and chicken. Season to taste. Simmer 5 minutes. Ladle into bowls and top with avocado, cilantro and a squeeze of lime.
