In the container of a blender combine 1 of the avocados,1 can of the broth, pepper, salt and hot pepper sauce. Process until smooth and creamy; transfer to a medium bowl. Repeat with remaining avocado and broth; stir into the bowl. Place a piece of plastic wrap on surface of the soup; refrigerate until very cold. To serve, ladle soup into bowls, dividing evenly. Garnish each portion with a spoonful of cream and a sprinkling of tomatoes and parsley.
