  1. Pour stock into a large saucepan and bring to a simmer. Add the chillies, chicken, chickpeas, oregano, chipotle chillies, rice, salt and pepper. Return to a simmer and cook for 30 minutes. If the soup is too thick, you can add a little more stock. Ladle into serving bowls and top with sliced avocado and cheese cubes.
