Southwestern Pork Soup (For Crock Pot)

“This is a great soup, so flavorful and so easy. Even though the avocado, lime juice and cilantro are "garnishes," the flavor of the lime and the cilantro especially is very key to the balance of flavors. This is good enough for company, really yummy. I think you probably could get away with using chicken meat in this too, although I tried this using the pork. Another find from the Robin Miller show, with my adjustments.”
