SOUPSONG HAS GONE HARDCOPY!
Mexican Avocado Soup
(Sopa de Aguacate)
This rich soup is both simple and seductive--in a word, irresistible. Serve hot or cold to 6 as a filling first course.
Heat the stock and cream and keep at a simmer. Puree the chili pepper and garlic in a blender, then add avocado. When ready to serve, gradually add the hot stock mixture and blend until smooth. Season to taste and either serve immediately with cilantro topping and chips on the side--or refrigerate immediately to make a cold soup. Avocados turn bitter when heated, so be careful.
