In a 6-quart soup kettle, melt the butter or margarine and add the onion. Sauté for 3 to 4 minutes, then add the flour and mix well. Add the tomatoes, cucumbers, green pepper, salt and pepper, stirring briskly. Stir in the broth and simmer for 30 minutes. Cool, then purée in blender 1/4 at a time. Chill, if it's to be served cold if not, return soup to the stove and heat thoroughly. Correct seasoning. Peel and finely dice the avocados and add to soup, stirring briskly. Stir in cream.
