I changed this just a bit to add more flavor. I sauteed the red bell pepper with the garlic (which I added more of) and some chopped onion in a little evoo/butter before adding the condensed soup water tomato juice (I used V-8) the spices and tomato. To make it creamy without too much fat I added a quarter cup of fat free evaporated milk. This was a nice tomato soup perfectly spiced. The only issue I had was that I would have liked more tomatoes and tomato flavor. Next time I'll use either less water and more tomato juice and I'll add more diced tomatoes. NOTE: This makes more than four servings unless you have really happy soup eaters. More like six healthy servings. Read More

I used milk instead of the water as always do with condensed tomato soup. I also halved the spices and still found the spices to over power the tomato flavor. If you like a spicy tomato soup then maybe this is recipe is for you. For me when I have tomato soup I like to taste the tomato and have it be the predominant flavor. We all ate it with our grilled mozzarella paninis but it's probably not a recipe that I'd make again. Read More

My husband and I love tomato soup and this was a nice change from the usual that I make. We love a smooth texture so I pureed the peppers and diced tomatoes before adding and it was wonderful. I will make this one again. Read More

I didn't have any chives and used garlic powder instead of fresh as well as canned diced tomatoes. I counted the juice of the canned tomatoes as enough "tomato juice." Yummy spices nice with the red pepper. Read More
