Chilled Black Bean Soup With Avocado – Shopping List

Looking at this list, I think the items you might have to purchase are the dry sherry, the avocado, sour cream and the cilantro.  You might already have the cilantro and avocado in your fridge if you’ve made my Chilled Black Bean Soup with Avocado or Mango Salsa.

If you’re not sure which salt or pepper to buy, please look at the pantry list in the Grocery Bag.
