      My first time trying alvocodo soup, and it's different but delish! I think I'm going to make it for St. Patty's Day this year for something new. I did add some extra salt and hot sauce and I used 2 small alvocados instead of one large. Like TasteTester, I put the final product through the sieve and it came out creamy and smooth. Thanks for posting!

      Everything about this recipe is perfect -- the taste, the spices, the proportions. The little dash of hot sauce added a very subtle tang to the soup -- it complemented the cream and avocado very well. This soup is silky smooth (thanks to putting the pureed ingredients through the sieve, which trapped every tiny little bit of grated onion or avocado piece that didn't get 100% pureed in the blender), and has a rich but balanced flavor. Such sinful goodness -- can't wait to share this with friends. A 10-star recipe in my book!
