Delicious and easy. My daughter loved it, too. So much better than soup from a can. We will be making this again. I used a can of diced tomatoes, and put about 3/4 of the soup in the blender and left the remaining 1/4 unblended. So creamy smoothness with some chunks and texture. MMMM. :) We got a generous 8 cups of soup from this recipe.
