Spicy Tomato Juice

 Spicy Tomato Juice
Meet the Cook: You can drink this juice plain or use it in most any recipe like chili that calls for vegetable juice as an ingredient. Coming from a family of 10 children - plus parents and a grandfather and cousin also at the table - I learned to cook out of necessity! These days, my husband is retired. We have four grown children (I make tomato juice for them, too) and six grandchildren. -K
