Everyone in this house is obsessed with avocado.
This is no joke. Avocado has been a favorite of mine since I first tried one after moving to Southern CA from WI in the early 90’s. I’ll enjoy it with just a drizzle of soy sauce or hot sauce with coarse salt and pepper. And, of course, I use it in all kinds of recipes!
My daughter Katie discovered her love for them a few years ago and begs me to buy them constantly. Which I do, but it’s frustrating when they’re hard as a rock one day and overripe the next.
But recently I discovered Simply Avocado, a new line of pure, wholesome avocado dips and spreads from the makers of Wholly
Guacamole, which has made it so much easier to keep avocado on hand. All I have to do is open the package for real, hand-scooped Hass avocados and just four ingredients or less. It’s available in five tasty varieties – Sea Salt, Chunky Avocado, Garlic & Herb, Roasted Red Pepper and Jalapeno & Lime – in the produce department at Walmart stores and also online at Mexgrocer.com, with more soon to come
With Mother’s Day approaching, I wanted to test out a few recipes I can make for my mom on her big day. She loves avocado, too, so I thought this avocado soup would be perfect for her. I needed something light yet flavorful for a starter that would also look pretty when I serve it to her.
I think this avocado soup meets all of those requirements, wouldn’t you agree?
Simply Avocado is so perfect for this avocado soup. All I have to do is open the package and pop it in my blender! No waiting for my avocados to ripen or having to make another trip to the store because the ones I purchased are past their prime. You should have seen Katie’s face light up when I told her she could open a package and enjoy it with nothing more than a spoon! It’s that good. So head over to Walmart and pick some up!
