After adding Tabasco smoked chipotle, fresh chives from the garden and a little bit of salt, the flavors popped out. The cheese amount was cut in half. Used your Recipe #337449 recipe for the tomato juice with several vegetables from our CS box. Added fresh cilantro for garnish. Reviewed for Veg Tag/March.
