HERE'S A DELICIOUS SAMPLE RECIPE:

My daughter Callista was telling me about this soup she had whipped up on a whim. I told her it sounded amazing, but she hadn't written any of it down; she sort of remembered what she did, so I had to coax some memories out of her. This might not be exactly what she created, but she gave it a thumbs up

I've never frozen this soup, so I can't tell you how avocados will freeze. It never lasts that long; it's such a comforting soup, sort of a New Mexican version of a chicken noodle soup. You'll feel your sinuses opening up when you eat this, and you'll be glad.

Callista's Amazing Avocado Chicken Soup

  • 2 tablespoons salted butter
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 cup onion, coarsely chopped
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 3/4" chunks
  • 1 quart low-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 cups water
  • 4 ounces roasted and chopped green chile, with juice
  • 10-ounce can diced tomatoes with green chiles, with juice (such as Ro*Tel)
  • 1/2 cup long grain rice
  • 5-6 ounces fresh baby spinach, coarsely chopped
  • 1 pound avocados; peel, pit, and cut into 1/2" chunks (ripe, but not mushy)

Coat a 6-quart saucepan with cooking spray. Melt the butter over rather high heat. Saute the garlic, salt, pepper, paprika, cumin, onion, and chicken until the pink is gone, 5-7 minutes. Add the broth, water, chile, and diced tomatoes with green chiles and bring to a boil. Add the rice and bring to a boil again, then cook on a rolling medium simmer 20 minutes, uncovered. Stir a few times. Add the spinach and cook another 1-2 minutes. Stir the avocados in gently and cook just a for a few seconds. Season, if desired. Cover and chill leftovers. Serves 4-6.

Vegetarian? Omit the chicken and substitute one pound of chopped summer squash varieties, such as yellow or zucchini, and substitute vegetable broth for the chicken broth.
