    Ginger_B's Note:

    I invented this recipe completely on my own on a cold winter day when I craved something spicy but simple. I've never made plain tomato soup since :) It's a truly wonderful change, spicy but creamy, warm and smooth..and kids love it. If your children are particularly sensitive to spiceiness, you may want to reduce the hot pepper sauce and possibly eliminate the red pepper flakes. My boyfriend and his son actually came up with the name "Dorito Soup." They love it on a cold day! I'm sure yours will, too!

      A very nice, pleasantly spicy soup that was so easy to put together, and such a tasty change from regular tomato soup. I didn't have any Dorito chips, so I used regular tortilla chips and it was still very good. Thanks for sharing!

      I doubled the hot sauce and red pepper flakes and could still add more heat to it, but didn't for the kids' sake. :) I think chipotle would be a good addition, as well. I also thinly sliced some corn tortillas and baked them to make tortilla shreds for garnish. This is a great way to use up some of my tomato soup that I got at a great deal. Thank you!
