I really enjoyed this soup. I had to use lemon juice on the avocado because I didn't have any limes. I also doubled the amount of chicken broth because it didn't seem like quite enough liquid . Maybe my veggies were too big or something. I served with shredded cheddar cheese on top and it tasted fantastic! Yummy!

Thank you for posting this recipe. I made it last week out of the cookbook, but it is great to have it online! This was a great meal. The "chili" title is a little misleading; it's not at all like a traditional chili, more of a spicy chicken stew. It is, however, incredibly tasty and very filling. My (non-dieting) husband absolutely loved it.
