WW Recipe of the Day: Spicy Chicken Avocado Soup for Two
(154 calories | 6 2 2 myWW *SmartPoints value per serving)
On a hot day, a bowl of spicy soup will actually often fit the bill. This quick and easy variation of the classic Mexican soup lends itself to whatever south of the border ingredients you might have in your refrigerator or pantry.
I first had it with big slices of jalapeño which were just a little too much. Since then I've put hot salsa in the soup and avoided chunky bites of fire. If extra-spicy is your passion, then by all means add a chopped Jalapeño pepper.
Rotisserie chicken is one of my best friends. A few days ago, I bought one and served the two of us for dinner.
The next day, most of the leftovers went in this soup. A real time saver.
I blended the beans with the salsa to add to the soup and realized I'd just seasoned those beans perfectly.
Keep this in mind when you have both on hand and need a quick salad.

Spicy Chicken Avocado Soup for Two Recipe Notes
The soup can be made ahead and kept in the pot. Add the avocados just before serving to keep them from becoming too soft and mushy.
Any kind of canned beans work here. I've made it with black, navy and small and large white beans, all of which are just fine.
Spicy Chicken Soup Serving Suggestions
A small basket of skinny corn chips can be served alongside or on top of the soup. A "salsa salad" or lettuce with additional salsa would be a great cooking addition.
Ways to Use Spicy Chicken Soup Leftovers
Leftovers freeze beautifully, though they are unlikely since this recipe only makes two servings. Add fresh avocado and limes when you thaw it.
