Mexican Style Chicken Soup

Rough chopped guacamole to be used to top the soup!

Yes, yes, yes. I will use any excuse to make a pot of soup. Beloieve it or not it has been relatively cool here in Florida so I thought it a good time to dust off my suop pot and get to work.

As luck would have it I had a left over shicken carcass from last weekend so I plopped that in a pot of water with some onion, garlic, salt, pepper, dried parsley and dried oregano. I let this simmer away on the stove all day (warmed up the house and made it smell great as well!).

The girls and I went to meet a couple of friends for an afternoon around their pool and then came home to finish off the dinner. I made a real rough version of guacamole. I had 2 ripe avacado, tomatoes, fresh cilantro, onions, a couple roasted jalapeños and 1 fresh. This all got mixed together with some lime juice, salt and pepper. We ladled the coup into our bowls added some precooked rice that we had and then topped it all with the guacamole!

Doesn't that look great?

This soup was incredible. Nice, light, fresh tasting and just full of memories of summer! I will definitely make this one again. Even in the hot, hot, hot summer!

As always...

Happy Entertaining!!!

The soup looks delicious! I've seen chicken soup with sliced avocados, but I like the idea of adding guacamole.

Hi Peter this would definitely be good on a cool summer night!

Hi Val let me know how you like it when you try it!

Hi Fearless you could probably just use store bought guacamole but I like the fresh flavors all thrown together.
