How many times have you tried a chicken soup recipe only to find that it was plain and unsatisfying? I have tried tons of recipes! To me, nothing I like more than a big bowl of chicken soup on a cool fall night with the family. We have tried literally dozens of chicken soup recipes but have found that nothing beats this Chicken Soup with avocado and lime recipe!
Chicken Soup for the soul
This Chicken soup with avocado and lime is a recipe that is after my own soul. We absolutely love avocado and lime in our house. We have both of them on hand all the time! The two pair really well in this and many other recipes.
We found a squeeze of lime a great way to brighten up a dish.
Tip: If you want to add a crunchy element to this dish, simply slice and fry/bake up some thin tortilla strips. Season them with a squeeze of lime and a pinch of salt. They are amazing!
What makes a good Chicken Soup recipe?
There a few things that make a really good bowl of chicken soup. First, the chicken needs to be seasoned well. You don’t want bland chicken! Second, the broth has to be homemade. I can definitely taste the difference between canned and homemade broth.

That is one of the most common downfalls to chicken soup. The foundation always starts with a good flavored broth. The broth seasoned with chicken on the bone and hearty vegetables will kick it up a notch.
