This is a really yummy comfort soup with a zing. Brings together the classic taste of cream of tomato, bacon and grilled cheese all in a soup. The pepperjack is the surprise zing.

Who knew tomato soup could be so spectacular. Extremely easy to make too. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe Viki. Made for the "Let's Party" 2010 Event.

This is just delicious. It takes a simple and wonderful tomato soup (5 stars right there in my opinion) and brings it up to the next level. I served this with grilled cheese sandwiches for a super easy weeknight meal.
