Paleo Cucumber Cilantro Gazpacho

I recently came into some produce after the Crossfit Game (an entire box of cucumbers to be correct), and while it may be a fun challenge to see how many cucumber margs we can drink, we are adults and try to have some level of responsibility, so I needed plan B.  

This is a quick, spicy and refreshing summer soup that is even better on day 2.  

2 cucumbers (peeled, seeded & chopped)
1 green bell pepper - diced
4 green onions, chopped
1 small jalapenos, seeded and chopped
5 small tomatillos
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 small bunch fresh cilantro
1/2 bunch fresh Italian parsley
1 cup chicken stock
Zest & juice from 1 small lemon
Zest & juice from 1 small lime
1 tbs Apple Cider Vinegar
Some sort of green hot sauce, salsa verde (just enough for heat - I used the green Tabasco)
Salt & Pepper to taste

Put it all in a food processor and have at it!  Chill until serving and garnish with chopped cucumber, herbs, tomatoes, green onions or whatever else sounds appetizing.  

Jalapenos can really vary in their level of heat, so if you're not that into spicy start with 1 pepper and no hot sauce and then add more to taste.
