    ok....there have been only two reviews and both five stars but ... My family just one by one pushed their bowls to the side and munched on the salad. I think it needed about double the avacado to make it work and not so much broth. The lime was overpowering and the wine just made it worse. I don't mean to be so negative on someones recipe but...this will not be something I make again. No one ate seconds and no one finished the first round and there were 7 at the table.  -  21 Sep 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    perfect accent for a Mexican meal!! The avocado and lime with crunchy bacon on top was great, things you wouldn't expect in a soup (I did thicken it with corn starch 2T. cs, 2T. water, blend in with a whisk). Perfect spring, summer meal on its own or as I did, served before a enchilada, burrito and taco meal amongst friends. will make again and again and again  -  24 May 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I made this soup in advance for a family dinner party, leaving the cream to add at the last moment. It is a lovely soup but not a good one for entertaining - because you need to watch it like a hawk. I accidently let it boil and it made it very bitter. I thought the cream would be the reason not to let it boil - but in retrospect it was the avocado.  -  21 Sep 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
