Project Description

One of my most famous recipes and super easy!

Chicken Avocado Soup garnished with Lime and Cilantro is a Mexican inspired soup. This soup can be tailored to your taste by adding more or less seasonings. If you like a protein packed soup, use 2 pounds of chicken.

This soup can be kept for 3-4 days in the fridge to enjoy throughout the week. If food prepping or doubling the batch, I would avoid adding in the cilantro and lime juice until just before serving. Enjoy!
