  1. In a frying pan over medium heat, cook the bacon until evenly brown. Drain, reserving 1 tablespoon bacon fat in the frying pan, chop and set aside. Place onion and celery in the frying pan and cook until tender.
  2. Transfer the onion and celery to a liquidiser or food processor. Pour in 1/2 the chicken stock, add avocados and blend until smooth.
  3. Transfer liquidised mixture to a large saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in remaining stock, wine, lime juice and double cream. Season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring often, until heated through, but do not boil. Garnish with chopped bacon to serve.
