Avocado Tortilla Soup

30 Min

Want to add a new taste to your tortilla soup? Throw in some avocados! Avocado-Tortilla Soup is a Mexican feast.

What You'll Need

  • 3 1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 cup salsa (See Note)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 4 corn tortillas, cut into eighths
  • 2 fully ripened Haas avocados, halved and pitted
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Mexican cheese blend

What to Do

  1. In a large saucepan, combine chicken broth, onion, salsa, and cumin; bring to a boil over medium heat.
  2. Reduce the heat to low, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, in a medium skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Sauté the tortilla strips 2 to 3 minutes, or until lightly browned, turning to brown both sides; drain on paper towels.
  4. Just before serving, slice one avocado and dice the other. Stir the diced avocado into the soup. Ladle the soup into individual serving bowls, and evenly top each with avocado slices, tortilla strips, and cheese. Serve immediately.


  • This can be as mild or spicy as you like, depending on the intensity of the salsa you use. No tortillas on hand? No problem! Crush up some corn chips and sprinkle those over the top of the soup.

Sizzling Home Fries

The best home fries are still the ones made in diners, you know the places that are nicknamed "greasy spoons." There's just something special about the taste of potatoes slung around a sizzling hot grill and mixed with the flavors of eggs and bacon that can't be beat. Wait until you try these - they're a breakfast (or anytime) winner.
