I Love Avocados (and Chilled Guacamole Soup)

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Avocados from Mexico. All opinions are 100% mine.

If you read this blog regularly, you know that I have a tendency to get obsessed with certain foods.  A particular flavor will appeal to me for a time and I will think about it constantly, dreaming up ever more creative ways to use it.  Oftentimes, that obsession will run its course and I will move on to other flavors and foods.  But there are some foods that I adore so much, they never fade from my mind.  Peanut butter for one.  And chocolate.  And avocados.  Yes, I am serious.  I love avocados that much.  I could eat them morning, noon and night, and in multiple ways.  I love them on salads and chilis and I love them spooned straight from the skin.  I love them mashed up as guacamole, which I can also eat straight with a spoon.  And lately, I’ve been adding them to my morning omelet with brie cheese.  I know it sounds like a bit of an odd combination, but trust me, it’s fantastic!

In my opinion, one of the best recipes that I developed for this blog is my Chilled Guacamole Soup.  It was very popular and was picked up by a number of other blogs and websites.  In honor of the I LOVE AVOCADOS campaign for Avocados from Mexico , I am going republish the recipe in this post so you don’t need to go digging it up.  It’s a wonderful take on the traditional guacamole and it makes a fantastic starter to any  meal!

But before I do, I encourage you all to check out their Facebook page, I love avocados on Facebook  They’ve got a lot of fun things going on over there.  I downloaded the Avocados from Mexico theme song in Spanish as a ringtone to my new smartphone, for fun.  All I had to do was scan the barcode below and voila, a new ringtone! 

They also have blogger badges like the one below, as well as virtual gifts to send to friends and avocado-themed wallpaper and screensavers.  If you love avocados as much as I do, you will want to Like them on Facebook!  I love avocados on Facebook

  14. You could have them for breakfast, Carolyn? Why not – I'd even have that soup for it. It looks fabulous. I'm the only one who loves avocados in our house, boohoo. Wish we were neighbours!
    As to the bar code thing, looks a great idea for a ring tone. Now if only I knew how to scan it.

    One fruit that I really love, avocados is one of the tastiest fruit all over the world, aside from fruit , sometimes they are cooking this specially for babies.

  21. I’m going to make this today. I noticed in the instructions that it doesn’t say when to add the onion (I checked it a couple times and couldn’t find it anyway). I’m assuming it goes in on the first round of blending, with the avocado and lime, based on the ingredients list order.

    I’m going to substitute pasillo (sp?) for the jalapeno peppers and lite coconut milk for the shipping cream because I have those. Wish me luck!
