Spice up your Tomato Soup

Popular canned tomato soup is good, but I’m not convinced that its that good. So if I’m eating it, I’m usually adding something. I’ve decided my favorite thing to do is roast a red bell pepper over the stove until the skin is blackened and can be easily peeled once cooled. Next I put the bell pepper, a little bit of the soup, and a little bit of a chipotle pepper in adobo sauce in the blender and blend until smooth. Finally, the blended mixture gets added to the soup and heat it up and you’re done. This whole process really doesn’t take too much time and you’re left with a kick-ass tomato soup. I topped the soup with some parmesan and parsley. If I had basil in the house it would have been basil. Try pairing the soup with grilled cheese.
