The mild and creamy taste of avocado makes a luxurious and rich soup that is complimented by fresh cilantro and lime juice. Serve with a dollop of chipotle cream.


  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground chipotle chile pepper
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped (about 1 cup)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 6 cup chicken broth or vegetable broth
  • 2 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro leaves
  • 2 tablespoon lime juice
  • 4 avocado, pitted, peeled and cut into cubes (about 5 cups)


  1. Place the oil in a soup pot over medium heat. Once it begins to shimmer, add the onion and sauté for 5 minutes until soft, then add the garlic and cook for an additional 35 seconds.
  2. Whisk in the broth, cilantro, lime juice and avocados and bring the mixture to a boil. Cook for 1 minute, and then remove the pan from the heat and carefully puree the hot mixture with a stick blender until smooth.
  3. Place the sour cream and the ground chipotle chile pepper in a small bowl and stir well until blended. Ladle the soup into bowls, dollop with the sour cream mixture and serve immediately.
