Mexican Shrimp Bisque

Kind of amazing how simple this soup really is...

1 small onion, chopped
1 tbsp olive oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tbsp all-purpose flour
1 cup chicken broth
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
1 tbsp chili powder
1/2 tsp each ground cumin and coriander
1/2 pound uncooked medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
1/2 cup sour cream
Fresh cilantro and avocado

In a small saucepan, saute onion in oil until tender.  Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer.  Stir in flour until blended.  Stir in broth, cream and spices; bring to a boil.  Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 5 minutes. 

Cut shrimp into bite size pieces; add to soup.  Simmer 5 minutes longer or until shrimp turn pink.  Gradually stir 1/2 cup hot soup into sour cream; return all to the pan, stirring constantly.  Heat through but do no boil.  Garnish with cilantro and avocado.
