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!

This was a great way to spice up canned tomato soup. The cans of tomato soup I get here are not condensed, so I didn't add any water and only used a few tablespoons of milk. Very good, thanks!

This soup is a good idea, but I'm just not so sure about the cheese. I used 2% Cheddar and it refused to melt completely so it was just sort of floating around. I think you'd be better off just sprinkling some cheese on top just before serving. Also, I wanted to make a complete meal of this so I added some pre-cooked meatballs and some egg noodle. Very different and interesting.

This soup is scrumptous! What a gem! I dbld the recipe for a family of 6-ALL guys, excluding lil' ole me. Note to self: TRIPLE IT! Even after Keebler crackers and 2 grilled cheese sammies each! Still they came back for more! TIP: Try adding a little Garlic Salt. TY Ginger_B!

I'm eating this as I type....added about 1/2 tsp. sambal oelek, as I had no crushed red pepper flakes, and also added 1/2 tsp. of Chipotle Tabasco sauce. Made it in the microwave, stirring every 30 seconds until the cheese was melted and everything was smooth. Skipped the salt, but used the black pepper. Perfect soup that I'll make many times over, just making sure to have good tortilla chips to crumble in. Thanks Ginger for such an easy and satisfying recipe

Since I've found this recipe, I've never eaten plain tomato soup again! I've been known to add red pepper to almost every meal, so this was perfect. I usually have the fully prepared tomato soup on hand, so I simply add the cheese, hot sauce and red pepper. I've shared this with many co-workers, family, and friends. Thanks so much for such a simple, fabulous tasting soup!

This jazzed up a plain old can of soup quite nicely. Even though, I skipped the pepper flakes, we still thought it was too hot for us so next time I would reduce the hot sauce to 1/2 tsp. I took another reviewer's suggestion and topped with tortilla chips and then I put shredded cheese on top and microwaved until melted. Definitely yummy! Thx Ginger.

This is a great way to spice up a plain soup. It has just enough heat to it to feel it in the back of your throat but not enough to cause discomfort. Pair it with a good old fashioned grilled cheese sandwich and you have yourself a wonderful meal.
