Very easy to put together and tasty. I like the heat of the red pepper. I prepared it all, then put it on low in the crockpot to let the flavors develop and keep it ready for whenever I wanted the soup. Definitely a great soup for the calories.

Wow was this zingy! Definitely has a lot of flavor, but I think we are just too used to Campbell's tomato soup to try this again.
