Servings: 10 servings

Calories: est 200 

Ingredients

  • 3 1/2 pounds ripe tomatoes 
  • 2 red peppers, seeds, veins and stem removed
  • 2 large shallots, skin removed, minced
  • 2 large garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 large English cucumber, skin and seeds removed
  • 3 jalapeños, seeds, veins and stem removed (1 for garnish to taste)
  • 1/4 cup sherry vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon Tabasco (and more to taste)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 avocados for garnish
  • 1/3 cup cilantro for garnish
  • 2 green onions for garnish

Instructions

1. Wash, dry and remove the core of each tomato. Over a mesh colander with a large bowl underneath, use a spoon and scoop out the meat of the tomato, leaving the skin and flesh intact. Make sure all the juice, seeds and meat go into the colander. Set the hollowed out tomato aside.

2. Make sure the tomato seeds are removed from the meat, then put the tomato pieces into a food processor (or blender).

3. Using a spatula press, stir, and work to get all the juice through the colander, leaving the seeds behind. Discard the seeds and add the juice (should be about 11/2 cups) to the food processor or blender.

4. Add half of one chopped red pepper, half of one chopped shallot, 2 minced garlic cloves, and 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil, and tabasco to the food processor. Blend until completely smooth. Pour this liquid into a large bowl and set aside

5. Finely chop the rest of the shallots and red pepper, jalapeno, cucumber, and tomato skin with flesh. Add to the bowl of tomato liquid, then stir in sherry vinegar, salt, and pepper. Place in the fridge and let chill at least 2 hours (longer would be better) before eating.

6. Meanwhile, finely chop the jalapeno, green onions, and parsley for garnish and refrigerate until soup is ready to serve. Slice and dice the avocado for garnish right before serving.  ENJOY!
