    Not a thick/creamy soup. Needs some added spice/hotness and some sugar to sweeten it up, otherwise pretty bland.

    Takes time to prepare, but it is worth the effort. Would make it on special occasions

    I made this the way the recipe stated plus two chipotle peppers (from a can of chipotle peppers in adobo sauce but omitted the sauce) to spice it up, & it tasted horrible. Not edible..bitter. Then, I added some diced tomatoes & made it worse -- more bitter & acidic. Then, I added 2 cans of store bought tomato soup & some whipping cream, a tsbp of sugar, and that mellowed it out enough where I could eat it. Everyone I served it to loved it--good amount of spice --jazzy tomato soup, essentially. It was still a little 'zingy' for me. It has potential, but 'as is' it is not very good. I've been asked to make it again, so I must have fixed it in a good way...they would not be asking for it again if it was made as the recipe states. It was really fast & easy to make, though...the reason I'm trying to perfect it.

    I agree that it needs a little salt and pepper, but my husband LOVES this soup. He's a big protein guy though, so we usually grill a chicken breast to go along with it.
