Avocado soup

Ingredients

  • 2 large, ripe avocados, cut in chunks
  • Juice of 2 limes
  • 1 tablespoon bottled, sliced, pickled jalapenos
  • Crushed ice, to serve
  • Slivered green onion and coriander leaves, to garnish

Preparation method

1. Place avocado, lime juice, jalapenos, 1 tablespoon juice from jalapeno jar and 11⁄2 cups iced water in a food processor. Process, using Pulse, until smooth. If too thick, dilute with more water. Season to taste with black pepper.
