AVOCADO SOUP

This soup is served in the avocado shells.  It will add fufu to your meal and it’s a party pleaser and will elevate you to a top notched host.  To make the shells sit flat, cut a slice from the stem end of the avocado.  Scoop out the flesh and discard the seed.  Place the shell in the freezer.

2 large avocados, 2 cups chicken broth, 1/2 tablespoon fresh cilantro, chopped, 1 small jalapeno, seeded and finely chopped, 2 cups heavy whipping cream, 2 tablespoons cognac, 2 tablespoons pink champagne

Peel avocados and dice.  In the food processor add the avocado, jalapeno pepper, and cilantro with chicken broth, puree.  Pour everything into a glass bowl, salt and pepper to taste.  Gradually fold in whipping cream. Chill soup for at least 2 hours. Fry bacon until crispy, crumble and set aside.   Add cognac and champagne just before serving. Spoon soup into frozen avocado shells. Top with crumbled bacon.

Tell me how bacon elevates your mood and makes you happy l
