I’m always on the lookout for a great soup recipe, especially as we roll into fall.

When Lt. Dan and I first started dating, I had never met anyone who had such a zealous passion for soup. We would go out on date night and he would order soup, while I ordered salad with dinner.

Whenever he referenced a restaurant, he would always start with, “They have this killer soup….” Furthermore, anytime I asked him what he wanted me to make for lunch he would always reply, “SOUP!”

Over the years I have learned to appreciate soup with the depth and fervency he does.

Soup not only tastes good, it’s a great way to sneak veggies into the kids and warm their bellies. Soup is also a wonderful make-ahead for school lunches, tailgating, and to keep in the fridge for a quick meal when needed.

So to cap off slow cooker week, I made a luscious and spicy guacamole soup, using Wholly Avocado.

You can certainly make this soup with fresh avocados, but the beauty of Wholly Avocado is that it’s ripe at the exact moment you need it. I like to keep Wholly Avocado in my freezer, so that when I need a backup plan for the avocado I bought that looked fresh on the outside, but was gray and funky on the inside, I’ve got fresh perfectly ripe 100% smashed avocado at my fingertips!

The avocado makes this simple soup creamy and filling. So quick to make, it’s the perfect recipe to throw in a slow cooker first thing in the morning before you head out for the day.

Then when you come home, simply puree and enjoy. And the best part is, I usually have enough leftover for lunch the next day!
