Pour soup in large bowl; add pepper mix and stir to incorporate. Divide into 4 soup bowls. Top each with salsa and tapenade.

Helpful Tips:

This is a variation on traditional guacamole, in soup form. Avocados give this soup a creamy consistency without cream. If too thick, add more chicken stock. Tapenade is found in grocery stores or wholesale stores.
