"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."

  1. In a large food processor, combine the avocado, shallot, chicken broth, tomato paste, hot pepper sauce, lime juice and tequila. Reserve a little bit of cilantro for garnish, then put the rest into the processor. Process until smooth. If you have an immersion blender, you may do this in a pot or large bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer to a large bowl, cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving.
  2. To serve, divide the soup between four chilled bowls. Top with a dollop of sour cream and a sprig of cilantro.

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...
