"The richness of this tasty chilled soup is balanced by the sharp injection of lime hot pepper sauce. An optional dash of Tequila adds an extra Southwestern kick." — Caliente-Mami

3 1/2 cups

This was delicious and full of flavor, but I did make a few changes. Instead of shallot, I used a clove of garlic; subbed sun-dried tomatoes for tomato paste; used veg broth; tripled the cilantro; and added half of a dried chipotle. I also didn't bother with the sour cream. It was pretty thick, so I added veg broth till I got the right consistency. The tequila was very subtle, but it definitely added flavor. This was so easy to make--a definite keeper!
Avocado soup is one of my favorite summer time treats but this recipe did not impress me. I found it rather bland. I think its a good starter recipe to build from. To make it how I like I doubled the cilantro and added it to straight to the soup and blended, once it sits for a while it adds a nice spring time flavor. I also added about a 1/4 cup heavy cream, garlic salt instead of regular and about 2 TBS lemon juice. Making these additions saved the soup. I will use this as my base recipe and keep playing around with it. Next time I may try adding some cucumbers.
I made this soup with some overripe avocados and fat free yogurt instead of sour cream and it turned out superb.It has a very creamy and light texture and tastes great.Its very decadent and looks like a lot of work. Thanks for a wonderful recipe!!
This is terrific. Take the other reviewers' advice and go easy on the broth and maybe heavier on the spices and cilantro. I also squeezed a full lime into the broth instead of using lime or lemon juice. Wait patiently while it chills in the fridge. It works better cold and not at room temperature. The result is very refreshing.
Didn't care for the taste of this. It tasted like watered down guacamole and the hot sauce added a weird taste.
I did not care for this even though I love all of the ingredients listed. I made it exactly per the recipe and I felt like I was eating liquified quacamole. After eating several bites I tried to spice it up with more hot sauce, cilantro and lime but...it just didn't do it for me.
Basically i couldnt resist making this into guacamole - I doubled the cilantro, added some heavy cream and garlic salt as was suggested earlier, but when it cam to adding the stock I stopped at ~2 cups- i shouldnt have even added this much. It compromised the creaminess and avocado flavor.
made it as described except I couldn't find shallots so I put in spring onions. it's very tasty and smooth. perfect for the summer.
