Creamy Avocado Chicken Soup

Love this new soup - It had tons of flavor.  I chose to make it easier by using pre-cooked chicken from Costco.

The soup had great texture.... but not too thick.  We tried to garnish the top for a nice picture but everything kept sinking.  I thought the flavor was great - but I love avocados!  Enjoy!

And yes - saw this recipe on Facebook!




Creamy Avocado Chicken Soup

1 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 - 1 cup green onion, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
32 oz chicken broth
1 lb chicken pieces
1 tsp cumin
1 1/2  - 2 avocados, seeded and peeled
3 Tbsp lime juice
1/3 cup cilantro

Saute the green onion and garlic in olive oil.  Add broth, chicken and cumin and simmer on medium to cook the chicken.  Remove chicken and shred or cut into chunks.  In a blender, puree the avocados, lime juice and cilantro with about a cup of the broth.  Add this back into the rest of the broth mixture and add the chicken.  Heat to serve.  Garnish with grated Monterrey Jack cheese, diced avocados, diced roma tomatoes and tortilla chips... .and fresh jalepeno slices if you like the heat!
