Simple, inexpensive, and hearty. My boyfriend and I love this different take on boring tomato soup. Best of all, it is very low in calories. Add shrimp for a protein boost.

My boyfriend doesn't like tomatoes yet managed to finish almost the entire pot on his own. I felt that there was too much celery overall and I didn't care for the texture of it with the tomato pieces. Read More

Made it exactly as shown (minus celery) and we loved it. The tequila lime jalapeño flavor combo was really good. Will make again. Read More

I doubled it for an event and added a teaspoon (or a bit more) of smoky paprika to the soup. This recipe is amazing! Thanks for sharing. It will be a staple at our house now. Read More
