Chicken & Tortilla Soup

Fine Cooking Magazine

Be sure the broth is very hot so that it heats up the ingredients in the bowl and offers a strong contrast with the cool, smooth chunks of avocado. The spice level is very low--just a slight chile warmth--so if you prefer more of a kick, add more chili powder or use a hotter powder. This recipe is easily doubled.
