Avocado Refrigerator Soup
A nice soup for any hot summer afternoon hanging out under a shade tree or under the RV awning. I like the combination of cool creamy with just a little spicy edge. This is very easy to prepare the night before and keep in the refrigerator for the next afternoon or evening after we arrive at our destination. It also makes a wonderful companion to a turkey sandwich.
2 large ripe avocados
1/4 cups lemon juice (fresh squeezed if possible)
1 quart chicken stock
1 pint cream or half and half
1 to 2 teaspoons chili powder
1/4 teaspoons hot sauce
1/2 teaspoons salt (to taste)
-=[ Optional Garnish ]=-
fresh cilantro, chopped
tortilla chip crumbs
For the least mess, work in a bowl that has an airtight lid with the lid set aside until after the mixing. Peel the avocados and in a bowl completely smash them with the lemon juice until there are no more chunks. Add chicken stock and cream stir until well mixed. Season with chili powder, hot sauce and salt. Store in an air tight container in the fridge until well chilled. Garnish with almost anything you would like with guacamole like cherry tomatoes, fresh cilantro, a spoon of salsa or a dab of sour cream. I even like a spoon full of the crumbs and bits of broken chips from the bottom of a tortilla chip bag.
Serves: 2 to 4
