SERVING OPTIONS
1. Just get it done
Add chicken, tomatoes, cilantro, and avocado to the soup. Stir gently and then portion in bowls

2. A little now and a little later
If you plan to double the batch or save the soup for later I recommend keeping all of the fresh garnishes separate from the broth until ready to serve.

Reheat broth to a gentle simmer. Place chicken, tomato, avocado and cilantro in bowl. Ladle hot posole broth into bowl.

Broth can be frozen and saved for later.
