Makes: 4 servings
Start to Finish: 25 mins

(1) 8 1/2 ounce package corn muffin mix
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon chili powder
(2) 14 1/2 ounce cans diced tomatoes with green pepper, celery, and onion, undrained
1/2 of an English cucumber, seeded and coarsely chopped*
3 green onions, trimmed and coarsely chopped
1 cup ice cubes
1 medium avocado, halved, seeded, peeled, and sliced
Sliced green onion, chopped cucumber, and/or chili powder (optional) 

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Prepare corn muffin mix according to package directions. Spread batter in a lightly greased 13x9x2-inch baking pan. Bake for 14 minutes or until golden and a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool slightly. Cut into 1-inch cubes. Toss with olive oil and chili powder. Place cubes on a baking sheet and return to oven for 5 minutes to crisp.

2. Meanwhile, in a blender combine tomatoes, cucumber, onions, and ice; cover and blend until nearly smooth. Pour soup into bowls; top with avocado slices and half of the croutons (reserve remaining croutons for another use).** If desired, sprinkle with additional green onion, cucumber, and/or chili powder.

*Tip: Peel cucumber, if desired, for a lighter-color soup.

**Tip: Store croutons in an airtight container up to 24 hours. Return to a baking sheet and crisp in a 400 degrees F oven for 5 minutes before serving.
