Tips for Making Chicken Avocado Soup
This recipe tastes best if you can use homemade chicken broth, if not don’t worry it’s still perfectly acceptable with store bought broth.
If you love to add heat to your chicken avocado soup then swap the jalapeno for a hotter chili like a birds eye, or simply add more Jalapenos.
freshly squeezed lime juice is the best option for this chicken avocado soup recipe, it’s worth the effort! If you want to add some optional toppings then cheese and/or sour cream go really well with it.
