This was wonderful! We loved it! The only thing I did differently was add shredded chicken in the soup for additional protein per my hubby's request. I don't eat cheese so I ate it with a spoonful of full fat plain greek yogurt and it was delightful! Avocados are a super food and are eaten often in our home, we eat at least 2 a day, so I'm always looking for recipes that can incorporate avocados somehow. This one is a keeper! Thank you for sharing!

it was ok. I couldn't get anyone else to eat it though. It needs something to liven it up. And the avocados ended up as bland little chunks.
