Yesterday I threw some ingredients together to make soup. I had some avocados that I had bought at the market in nearby Colonia del Valle that were at their peak of flavor. In the pantry I had small cartons of chicken broth and diced tomatoes that I needed to use up. First I put those items in the refrigerator since this was going to be a cold soup. After they were chilled, I cut up an avocado, put it in the blender along with the broth and tomatoes. I added a bit of garlic powder and a dollop of "salsa macha", a spicy salsa made from roasted chiles and peanuts. I blended it until smooth, and then garnished it with chunks from another avocado.
The recipe wouldn't make it into any gourmet cookbook, I am sure, but it was ridiculously easy to prepare. And I thought it was tasty, so that's all that counts!
