This top-rated Southwestern Chicken Soup is a great way to use up leftover chicken. The creamy chunks of avocado add a richness that's unusual to find in most chicken soups. GOOD TO KNOW: Make this healthy soup a little healthier with whole grain rice. Beans and rice are a complete source of protein.
