Can of Tomato Soup Challenge

TastyJon | May 5, 2005 01:22 PM

I noticed a local cooking class offering a $40 course on recipes based on Campbell's tomato soup. "How to make bisques, tomato cake, etc."

So I thought... what do other hounds do to jazz up this simple and inexpensive staple?

One thing I like is to heat it up, as directed, and then add a mix of smokey southwest spices (ground peppers), garlic (fresh, if available - or ground) and also some hot sauce (a big squirt of Sriracha for me). If available, I'll throw in some chopped green onion, then pour into a bowl and crunch in some tortilla chips or sliced flour tortilla for texture.

If I have leftover taco meat or cooked ground pork (I often cook Chinese dishes) I add this in when cooking (often I freeze such leftovers in baggies and then add to the soup when needed). Chicken would work as well. Another variation was discovered yesterday when I threw in some chunks of danish blue cheese that was nearing termination in the fridge. It turned the above recipe into a silky, pungent Nacho-like soup.

Very cheap and easy. Anyone else have some recipes?
