1. In a large soup pot, simmer the chicken stock, tomato juice, Worcestershire sauce, and lime juices with the jalapeno, cilantro for 45 minutes.While simmering; grill the chicken until cooked all of the way through, then shred (optional–use canned chicken breast.)

2. Strain simmered stock mixture and add green onion, chilies, red bell pepper, rice, corn, garlic to the remaining strained stock and simmer for 20 minutes. The mixture will have the consistency of a soupy stew.

3. Mash up the avocados and then pipe them on top of the stew to create a “Gopher Gut” look, add a teeny bit of lime juice if not serving immediately to keep avocado from turning brown. Artfully, place the tortilla strips and shredded cheese on top of the “Guts” .
