n. pl. gaz·pa·chos
A chilled soup made with chopped tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, peppers, and herbs.

[Spanish, originally, a soup made from pulverized stale or toasted bread, from a Mozarabic source perhaps akin to Spanish caspicias, remainders, and caspa, dandruff (of pre-Roman Iberian origin), or from Late Latin gāzophylacium, treasury, alms box (the soup being so called because of the miscellaneous worn-out items found in alms boxes), from Greek gāzophulakion, treasury : gāza, treasure (of Iranian origin; Persian ganj, treasure) + phulax, phulak-, guard.]

A reaping-hook fits my hand better than a governor's sceptre; I'd rather have my fill of gazpacho' than be subject to the misery of a meddling doctor who me with hunger, and I'd rather lie in summer under the shade of an oak, and in winter wrap myself in a double sheepskin jacket in freedom, than go to bed between holland sheets and dress in sables under the restraint of a government.
Not the gazpachos and other lighter, chilled soups of summer, but piping-hot, fortifying bowls.
Gazpachos often taste better after the flavors are allowed to merge in the fridge for a few hours.
Entre los gazpachos calientes el carnerete de Cordoba, es un plato a base de patatas entre cocidas y hervidas, que se prepara con ajos y pan frito pero sin carne, a pesar de su nombre; el gazpachuelo malagueno a base de patatas, ajos, caldo de pescado y mayonesa; el arranque roteno o gazpacho de Cadiz es un plato que esta entre el gazpacho y el ajo caliente; y el gazpacho del huevo frito de Extremadura, preparado con verduras y en el que en el aceite de freir los ajos se frie ademas el huevo.
These days Gazpachos are far more refined and you can safely cut back on the chillies, although a blast of Tabasco certainly gives them that extra zing.
These fabulous gazpachos (best eaten on the stone steps of the Parroquia de la Merced right across the street) are the quintessential Mexican urban experience.
The last, a chili-seasoned tomato juice cocktail, is his great contribution; most gazpachos use plain tomato juice and bring mere refreshment, while Lie's brings exaltation.
