Directions

  1. Slice the avocados in half lengthwise, working around the pit. Twist to separate the halves. Remove the pit and use a spoon to scoop out the flesh.
  2. Add the avocados, cucumber, garlic, lemon juice and chicken stock to a blender and puree until smooth, working in batches if necessary. Season with salt and refrigerate until the soup is well chilled.
  3. Divide the soup among four chilled bowls. Garnish with a dollop of sour cream and a dash of hot pepper sauce and serve.
