    Cookgirl's Note:

    I never realized how spoiled I was growing up with a large avocado tree in our backyard in sunny Southern California. Here in Oregon I am forced to buy avocados from the supermarket. Oh, the humility! Nothing compares to the buttery, rich flavor of fresh avocados-NOTHING! Slightly adapted recipe from Nava Atlas' Regional Recipes for the Vegetarian Kitchen.

    1. 1
      Peel and pit the avocados. To avoid browning, place the avocados in a mixing bowl and immediately mash them with 1/2 cup of the buttermilk and the lemon juice until avocados are smooth.
    2. 2
      Add the remaining ingredients to the bowl except the garnishes and mix well. At this point, you can *puree the soup or not, your choice.
    3. 3
      Cover the soup well and chill at least 1 hour or until ready to serve.
    4. 4
      Before serving, cut the tortillas into 1/2" x 2" strips and lightly toast in a hot cast iron skillet until they are crisp. Stir frequently to avoid burning.
    5. 5
      Taste and adjust the seasonings in the soup. *If the soup is too thick for your liking, thin using a little bit of vegetable broth until you have the desired consistency.
    6. 6
      For each helping, serve soup garnished with the tortilla strips, dash of paprika, sliced scallions, cilantro, mint and diced tomatoes.

      Yummy! Daughter's liked it too (5 years old & 15 months) I may have toned down the spice though. I was using what I had on hand, organic avocados, instead of milk I used a good unhomoginised organic kifer and water, freshly squeezed organic lemon juice, no bell pepper, organic green onion, organic garlic clove (not elephant), some cayenne pepper powder as I didn't realize the heat was optional, organic cilantro & parsley, no mint as it is just popping up in the shaded area of our garden, sea salt, plus the rest of the ingredients. Made for Veggie Swap.
