After bringing this six-ingredient soup to a teachers' function, I had so many requests for the recipe that it was published in the school newsletter. I serve the rich soup in mugs with a Caesar salad and crusty bread.—Sarah Perkins, Southlake, Texas
"My husband and I have never been fond of tomato soup, but we think this one is out of this world," says Chris Nelson from Alliance, Ohio. "Since a friend gave me the recipe a while back, I've made a batch every week. It's good as an appetizer or paired with a sandwich or salad at lunchtime."
Chris Christopher of Albuquerque, New Mexico found an easy way to jazz up canned tomato soup. “I created this recipe after eating some tangy tomato soup in a restaurant,” she explains. “They wouldn't divulge the ingredients, so after a few tries, I came up with this version. It is so simple and very tasty.”
"I adapted the original recipe for this flavorful soup so I could make it in the slow cooker," writes Lydia Kroese from Minnetonka, Minnesota. "It's ideal for staff luncheons at the school where I work, since we don't have easy access to a stove or oven."
"Tomato juice gives extra flavor to this wonderful soup that is so quick and easy to prepare," comments Clara Honeyager of Mukwonago, Wisconsin. "I found the recipe many years ago in a tomato recipe book of my mother's and have shared it with many people."
Five common ingredients are all you'll need to prepare Sue McMichael's hearty full-flavored chowder. "This is a terrific soup, particularly as the cooler season sets in," writes the Redding, California cook. And at 55¢ a bowl, it's economical as well.
