This is so easy, but so tasty. You can try different levels of heat for your picante sauce, or just use a mild one and let people add Tabasco or another hot sauce, according to their tastes. I also suggest serving topped with croutons to give a little texture boost.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large saucepan, cook the onions and garlic in the butter over medium-low heat, stirring frequently, until the onions are tender and a nice golden-brown color.
  2. Stir in the tomato juice, beef broth, water, and picante sauce. Reduce the heat to low and simmer, uncovered, for about 20 minutes.
  3. Transfer the soup to bowls and divide the cheese evenly between them. (Add croutons, too, at this point, if following my suggestion in the description.) Serve hot.
