Spicy Tomato Soup
The other day I was trying to figure out what to eat for lunch. My son was chowing down on an egg scramble, but I wasn’t sure what I was feeling like. So I went to the pantry and came up with a can of tomatoes. We had some cream and chicken broth in the fridge that needed to be used up and voila…tomato soup.
Heat up 1TBS of butter in a pot
Add one can of tomatoes and cook for about 5 minutes
Add about 1TBS of flour and cook for 20 seconds.
Add chicken broth ( I used about ¾ cup)
Simmer for 15 minutes
Take of heat and blend until smooth.
Add about ¼ cup heavy cream and bring to a simmer
Stir in ¼ tsp. cayenne and ½ tsp. chili powder
Add salt and pepper to taste.
Cut a bit of basil, about ½ tsp. and sprinkle on top
