This is a creamy tomato soup with a bit of heat. Although it is wonderful just as it is, it would also be good with some cooked shrimp. From Carry-Out Cuisine.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Saute the onion in the butter.
  2. Add the tomatoes and salsa. Simmer until the liquid is almost gone.
  3. Add the cream cheese slowly in small amounts so that it melts into the tomato-salsa mixture. When all the cheese is melted, add the remaining ingredients except the garnish.
  4. Serve hot. Top each bowl with a paper-thin lemon slice and a cilantro leaf.

This was delicious! I halved the recipe, I used a little squirt of sriracha hot sauce instead of tobasco, I used half and half instead of cream and I pureed a fresh tomato and added it in with the canned tomatoes. The only thing I did wrong was I used too much lemon juice, my lemon was small so I thought I could use all the juice from it but it made the soup a bit too tangy. I'll definitely make this again this Winter!

This was a really quick to make, cheap, easy soup for an excellent weeknight meal. I also cut the recipe in half for Dave and myself. Used a whole jar of Smokey Bacon BBQ salsa which gave the soup a lovely smokey flavour. Will be making again for sure.

Very nice! This was a delicious, creamy soup with lots of flavor. I cut the recipe in half (two of us eating) but still ended up with a lot of soup. The only change I made was adding a little more salsa for a spicier taste. Definitely a keeper, thank you!
