Comments on Chilled Avocado Soup

The recipe comes out pretty bland; it calls for 1 qt of chicken broth, I think that imparts a too-chickeny flavor. It lacks the "smack-in-the-mouth flavor of Gazpacho. I won't make it again. But keep providing those novel recipes!

Thanks for your comment, Al. If you did feel like trying this recipe again, you could substitute half of the chicken broth with water (to reduce chicken flavor) and be a little more liberal with the cayenne.
