Smoky Tomato Soup is super delicious and much better than that canned crap you buy when in a pinch. All you have to do is cut up a few ingredients, open a couple cans, add them to a pot and there you have it. The key to this meal is to make sure to serve it with a delicious sandwich. And that sandwich should be a grilled cheese 9 out of 10 times. Maybe add some bacon to it, maybe switch up the bread choice or even mix a few cheeses. But the main thing to take away is to make a grilled cheese with this soup. A cold or hot day, this soup will get you a standing ovation. Get your ego ready for the praise and don’t let it go to your head.
