Zesty chicken lime and avocado make the base for this soup. Toasted vermicelli noodles add an additional layer of flavor to create a filling meal.
It is always soup season over here! This chicken lime & avocado soup was the perfect solution to fulfill our soup craving. Leftover chicken is perfect for this soup. Either chop or shred the chicken depending on the desired textures. Lime juice adds a delicious acidity and sourness to the soup. Meanwhile, the avocado cuts that sourness and adds an amazing layer of creaminess.
Some of the best meals are the ones that are created off of a whim, with ingredients on hand. Vermicilli noodles are something that stay in the pantry here. These noodles make a great side for taco night, or in this case, a great addition to soups. After sauteing the noodles in olive oil, they take on a nice golden brown appearance. Sauteing them also helps them keep a nice bite to them once they are added to the soup.
Serve the chicken lime and avocado soup with your favorite tortilla chips, or tostada shells. Do not forget to add your favorite hot sauce or salsa to spice it up a bit!
