Chicken Avocado Soup http://www.mamamiss.com ©2013

So, I LOVE me some avocado, almost as much as cotton candy…well almost ;)  And you love avocados too – I know you do!!  You can eat them, spread them on your face, or throw them in this soup for starters!  Gotta love a veggie that has dual properties friends!!  I’ve also seen where you can swap out butter for avocado in most baked goods too.  I haven’t tried it myself – but sounds yummy – kinda – in a weird way ;)

This chicken avocado soup recipe is so very yummy.  It’s also light, low in calories, and the huge chunks of avocado just melt in your mouth as you eat it –  oh Y.U.M.  Love love love – it’s one of our favorites to make & eat!

  1. Very interesting! I will sure make it soon as we eat gluten free and we want to loose weight before vacations. Thank you!

  2. I’ve made something similar as this for years. We do it like a buffet soup and add thinly sliced Fresno peppers (a bit milder than jalapeño peppers) cooked rice, more diced tomatoes, and asiago cheese. I have the broth boiling and everyone layers as much of the ingredients as they want, then ladle the steaming broth over their creation. Thin tortia strips as a garnish. Work really well with white fish or crab if money is not an issue. Yummy!!!

  3. I just made this for dinner tonight and it was absolutely delicious!! Definitely going to make again :). I had about 3 bowls because it was so yummy! Thanks so much for sharing.
