Smoked Chipotle Tomato Basil Soup

Colorado Connie 0

"A rich and flavorful soup that is quick and easy to prepare. Tomato and basil meld together with the smoky spice of mild tabasco sauce as well as the kick of bloody mary mix. Also a great base for vegetable-based soups or as a topping for appetizers."

This is indeed very good, and Hubs and I cleaned it up. But I’m not so sure this was any better or much noticeably different with the uncommon ingredients of Bloody Mary Mix, Clamato and chipotle flavored hot sauce (all not so readily at hand) than had I simply used the crushed tomatoes and a little spice to kick it up.

I did not use half-n-half, I used evaporated milk and just enough to give it a creamy mouth feel without adding too much fat. I also used sea salt instead of garlic salt. I made NO other changes. This is seriously one of the best tomato soups I've ever had. Everything works together very well and makes this excellent unique tomato soup. I made a grilled cheese sandwich to go with and this was a quick soup recipe that made a filling and comforting lunch.


Really yummy... used regular vegetable juice instead of tomato clam since I had a big bottle in fridge, used fresh/frozen basil, chipotle powder and skim milk.. really tasty tomato soup
