This easy raw gazpacho is like “liquid guacamole” that kicked me into a pleasure-induced coma and that had me “coat-checking” my teeth and dreaming up a recipe for a “taco in a glass.” Hmmm…food for thought.

Tailor this soup to your own preferences. I've suggested quantities for garlic, salt and herbs as a guide only. These quantities led me to my perfect blend. But you might want a bit more heat, garlic or cilantro.

I served this soup as a main meal with lots of toppings. That way, it serves about 4 people. But, this gazpacho is also sensational served in shot glasses sans toppings at parties. A splash of tabasco is magic, too.

Be sure to use avocados that are ripe with no bruising or brown spots to avoid avo flavor funk.
