Have you ever gotten together with friends for a pot lock meal and been awed by someone else’s creation? Sometimes, I am amazed at the different types of recipes that people can come  up with when given the same ingredients. One person may see peanut butter as a dessert ingredient while another might see it as part of a spicy dip for chicken. The possibilities are endless when it comes to creating new recipes out of a few basic foods. I was recently asked to get together with a few other Atlanta bloggers to see what we could create with avocados. And not just any avocados, either. Our food blogger mission was to create a cool recipe using Avocados from Mexico and then share the recipes with each other and with our readers.

avocado soup ingredients

Avocados are extremely versatile. They can be eaten alone or used in many different types of tasty recipes. Fresh avocados go great on sandwiches, toast or even as a substitute for higher calorie spreads to reduce your intake of calories  fat, sodium and cholesterol. Avocados contain what is called ‘good fats’….the monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fast that we are supposed to be eating. One ounce (3 slices) of an avocado has only 50 calories but contributes almost 20 different vitamins and miners to your diet. They have a wonderful flavor and an incredibly creamy texture which I absolutely love!

how to use avocado

Avocados are really easy to prepare. You want to find one that is dark in color and  firm but gives slightly when you press gently on it. Hold the avocado in the palm of your hand and gently slice all the way around the middle with a large knife. There will be a large pit in the middle so don’t try cutting all the way through! When the cut is made all the way around, twist the two halves in opposite directions and they will pop right apart! On one side you will see the large pit…use your knife to remove it. I sortof chop the sharp end of the knife right into the pit and then turn. It will come out easily! Scoop the soft center out of the avocado with a large spoon and then dice. Very easy!

chicken and avocado soup toppings

For my recipe, I chose to combine a few of my favorite flavors from some classic Mexican dishes. I made this as a ‘top your own’ soup recipe to give my kids a chance to get creative and have some control over their meal. Top your own dishes are always a big hit in my house! I used fresh cilantro, chopped avocado, crushed tortilla chips and spoonfuls of fresh lime juice to create the finished product.
