Nothing beats slurping up a bowl of warm tomato soup that is super easy to prepare from your own kitchen. It tastes so much better than the store bought versions. Transform this soup with a little twist by adding some of your favorite herbs or spices. Try making it thick or thin, chunky or smooth, the way you love them most.
My method involves a quick and much easier way eliminating the blending process but this is a personal choice. I prefer my soup in its original state, love to bite into a chunky bit of tomato in them.
Have added some chili powder for extra hotness also for its beautiful color. This can easily be replaced with freshly ground black pepper if the chili powder isn't available in your kitchen.
