Tomato soup has a real affinity for beef bouillon. Years ago, everyone served that simple combination as an appetizer, and it's as good today as ever, especially if you dress it up a little. Adding diced onion and green pepper gives it that "homemade" look while punching up the taste. Garnish with sour cream and/or chives and you have a great start to your next dinner party.
