This Easy Chicken Avocado Lime Soup Recipe Is Ready in 30 Minutes

A tangy broth packed with Mexican flavors and loaded with shredded chicken and creamy avocado that's ready in less than 30 minutes? Sounds far-fetched, but in this case, it's true. Your week just got a little better, didn't it?

Cuisine: Mexican
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes


  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup chopped green onions, including whites (mince the whites)
  • 2 jalapeños, seeded and minced (leave seeds if you want a spicier soup)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 cans (14.5 ounces each) low-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 Roma tomatoes, seeded and diced
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/3 cup chopped cilantro
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 3 medium avocados, peeled, cored and diced
  • tortilla chips, Monterey jack cheese, sour cream, for serving (optional)

Here’s how to make it:

  1. In a large pot, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the green onions and jalapenos and sauté until tender, about 2 minutes, adding garlic during last 30 seconds.
  2. Add the chicken broth, tomatoes, cumin and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Add the chicken breasts. Bring mixture to a boil over medium-high heat, then reduce heat to medium, cover with lid and allow to cook, stirring occasionally, until chicken has cooked through, 10-15 minutes (cook time will vary based on thickness of chicken breasts).
  3. Reduce burner to warm heat. Remove the chicken from pan and let rest on a cutting board 5 minutes, then shred chicken and return to soup. 
  4. Stir in cilantro and lime juice. Add avocados to soup just before serving. (If you don't plan on serving the soup right away, I would recommend adding the avocados to each bowl individually, about half an avocado per serving.) Serve with tortilla chips, cheese and sour cream, if desired.
