As sweater weather approaches, it’s a good time to start thinking about the warm feeling and savory smells of cold season soups.
Whether looking for a simple start to an Italian feast or the main course to a meal, this scrumptious tried and true soup is sure to be a crowd pleaser.
The hardest thing about this soup is whether to add one chili pepper (which gives it a mild kick) or three (where you get a “punch”). This creamy soup is good hot or cold. Add some corn or cooked chicken to make it more substantial.
Don’t let the simplicity of this soup fool you. It has great flavor, texture and is delightfully spicy. Locally produced salsa, like Frog Ranch Salsa, delivers big Ohio tomato flavor.
