  • 1-2 T Chosen Food Avocado oil (or fat of choice)
  • 1 c chopped green onions + more for garnish
  • 2 cloves fresh garlic
  • 1 jalapeno, seeded and roughly chopped (omit if you don’t want it very spicy)
  • 6 c chicken broth (homemade is best, but boxed will work)
  • 1 t Redmond Real Salt
  • 2 t cumin
  • 1-2 avocados, diced + more for garnish (depends on how big they are)
  • 1½-2 c cooked, shredded chicken
  • 1-3 t chipotle chili flakes + more for garnish
  • juice of 2-3 limes + extra wedges for garnish
  • 2 roasted poblano peppers, seeded and chopped
  • handful of chopped fresh cilantro + more for garnish
  • s&p to taste
  • optional garnish items: sliced radishes, diced tomatoes, crispy tortilla strips, (here’s our recipe for flour tortillas, make em’, slice them up and give them a quick fry) diced avocado, swirl of coconut milk, chopped cilantro, chopped cilantro, plantain chips, more chipotle chile flakes…cotija cheese if you can tolerate a bit of dairy & don’t forget an extra squeeze of lime juice!


  1. Combine coconut oil, green onions, garlic and jalapeno in a large stock pot (at least 5 qt) and saute until all items are soft and fragrant.
  2. Add chicken broth, salt and cumin and let simmer for about 20 minutes, you have to let those flavors mingle!
  3. Toss in avocado and using an immersion blender, blend until all avocado is pureed and smooth. Alternately, if you don’t have an immersion blender (get one…it’s a must kitchen gadget!) you can puree in a blender in small amounts. But PLEASE…remember that hot liquids in a blender have to be done carefully, VERY carefully in small batches. Otherwise you’ll have a burning, hot mess of a volcano out the top of your blender and all over your hands and kitchen! Please get an immersion blender!
  4. After avocado is completely smooth, add shredded chicken, chipotle chili flakes, lime juice, poblano peppers and chopped cilantro. Taste and add additional salt, pepper and/or lime juice.
  5. Ladle into bowls and garnish with suggested toppings above, or simply eat as is…either way your mouth is gonna love this!
