"Wonderful way to blend the tastes of avocado and bacon in a warm, hearty soup. Besides the bacon bits, this soup works with a dollop of sour cream and some lime zest. Eat with plenty of crusty bread."

ok....there have been only two reviews and both five stars but ... My family just one by one pushed their bowls to the side and munched on the salad. I think it needed about double the avacado to make it work and not so much broth. The lime was overpowering and the wine just made it worse. I don't mean to be so negative on someones recipe but...this will not be something I make again. No one ate seconds and no one finished the first round and there were 7 at the table.

perfect accent for a Mexican meal!! The avocado and lime with crunchy bacon on top was great, things you wouldn't expect in a soup (I did thicken it with corn starch 2T. cs, 2T. water, blend in with a whisk). Perfect spring, summer meal on its own or as I did, served before a enchilada, burrito and taco meal amongst friends. will make again and again and again :)

I made this soup in advance for a family dinner party, leaving the cream to add at the last moment. It is a lovely soup but not a good one for entertaining - because you need to watch it like a hawk. I accidently let it boil and it made it very bitter. I thought the cream would be the reason not to let it boil - but in retrospect it was the avocado.
