Chicken Avocado Soup
Posted on August 29th, 2013

Crock pot meals tend to be heavy and hearty, not what a person generally craves in the summer months.  I've been missing my crockpot, though.  This crockpot chicken avocado soup is light and, with fresh lime juice, avocado, and cilantro, it is refreshing, too.  

Ingredients:
3 chicken breasts, boneless and skinless
2 avocados
1 15 oz can of diced tomatoes, drained
1 15oz can of black beans, drained and rinsed
1 small onion, chopped
1 tsp. oregano
3 garlic cloves, minced or 1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp paprika
salt and pepper to taste
1 32oz chicken broth
1 cup frozen corn
2 limes
fresh cilantro

Add chicken, tomatoes, black beans, onion, corn, and spices to crock pot. Cook on low for 6-8 hours.  Remove chicken from pot and chop.  Return chicken to pot.  

Serve with a squeeze of fresh lime juice, sliced avocado and fresh cilantro.  You can also add some cooked brown rice, crushed tortilla chips, or grated cheese.

Thanks, Bethany! I came up with it a couple of summers ago when I wanted to make something in the crockpot, but didn't feel like anything too heavy. You have to try it with a little bit a brown rice! It's one of our favorites!

I make a soup almost just like this!! I should do it in the crockpot. One difference is I add 2 chopped zucchinis. Makes it taste even more fresh AND my kids won't pick them out cause they like the soup:)

Lydia, the zucchini sounds fantastic. I'll have to try that the next time I make this. Thanks!
