On a chilly day, the best way to warm up is with some homemade grilled cheese sandwiches and tomato soup. You pull out the bread, butter, cheese, and a can of tomato soup. But wouldn't it be nice to make your own tomato soup, with all the spices you would want? Maybe you like your soup spicier, creamier, soupier, with sour cream, with chicken broth instead of vegetable broth. Who knows? It's up to you, so here is a basic, classic tomato soup recipe where you can mix and match, add or subtract whatever ingredients your heart desires.
