    Avocado is one of my all time favorite things to eat. Many people don't realize that the avocado, like the tomato is a fruit. Maybe that explains why summer is the very best time get fresh, California avocados. In addition to eating avocado as guacamole, or as a side with burgers, salads, and the like, I am always on the lookout for a new way to enjoy one of my favorite summertime treats. This version of chilled avocado soup uses avocado, chicken broth, cream, and coriander to create a rich, creamy soup that is served chilled, and which makes for a perfect dish for dinner on a warm summer evening.

    Ingredients:
    3 Hass avocados, peeled and pitted
    1 tomato, peeled, seeded and diced
    1 tablespoon shallots, chopped
    1 tablespoon olive oil
    2 cups chicken stock
    1 cup heavy cream
    salt and pepper to taste
    ¼ teaspoon ground coriander, to taste
    ½ cup chopped cilantro, as garnish
    ½ cup Cotija cheese, crumbled as garnish
    4 limes, sliced
