“This is a recipe I've modified, originally from I usually make it on the mild side for the kids, then DH and I spice it up. Don't skimp on the garnishes!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large saucepan over medium heat, sautee onion and garlic in oil until translucent, about 4-5 minutes.
  2. Stir in chicken and brown, then add stock, lime juice, Ro-Tel (with juice), salt and pepper. Gently simmer until chicken is cooked, 3-5 minutes. Stir in avocado and cilantro and heat through, and adjust seasonings to taste.
  3. (If you wish to thicken the soup a bit, use an immersion blender or mash some of the avocado by hand. You can also add potato flakes if you want a thicker broth.).
  4. Ladle soup into bowls and garnish with a dollop of sour cream and cheddar cheese, a sprinkle of additional cilantro, with lime wedge and tortilla chips on the side. Enjoy!
