Spicy Chicken Avocado Soup for Two

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.

Ingredients

  • 2-1/2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 green onion, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 cup cooked rotisserie chicken breast, skin removed and shredded
  • 1/2 cup cooked white beans
  • 2 tablespoons salsa (mild or hot, depending on your taste)
  • 1/4 large avocado, cut into small cubes
  • 2 lime wedges
  • Cilantro sprigs (optional garnish)

Instructions

  • Heat the broth, green onion and cumin in a medium pot over medium-low heat.
  • Let broth simmer for 5 minutes, then stir in the chicken, white beans and salsa and cook until heated through.
  • Serve in bowls topped with cubed avocado, lime wedge and a sprig of cilantro (if using).

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.
