Zesty Tomato Soup

"When some friends stopped by unexpectedly, my husband, Phil, came up with this fast-to-fix soup that tastes homemade," shares JoAnn Gunio of Franklin, North Carolina. "Two easy ingredients give canned soup just the right amount of zip."

    I cannot imagine that this "tastes homemade" How does this qualify as a recipe? I agree with the first commenter, a little imagination please.

    I didn't make this, nor would I. I can't believe that by adding basically 2 teaspoons of chili powder, that is good enough to make it to the recipe file. Please Taste of Home, at least require a certain level of creativity to be shown before adding a recipe to the website.
