The avocado, with its sensuous shape and texture, has been regarded as an aphrodisiac for centuries.
Now we also know that avocados are rich in beta-sitosterol which helps lower “bad” cholesterol levels.
This creamy, delicious soup is quick to make, and good for the heart in every way! Green chilies, lemon juice, fresh parsley, and a hint of sherry make it a lovely beginning to a romantic meal.

1 4-ounce can or jar green chilies
1 medium onion, chopped
Salt and pepper to taste
2 teaspoons lemon juice

Chopped chilies or fresh parsley to garnish
