chopped red bell pepper
red onion, chopped
crumbled blue cheese
1 (4 ounce) package
cream cheese, softened
1 (14.5 ounce) can
1 1/2 cups
ground black pepper
granular no-calorie sucralose sweetener (such as Splenda®)
It's rich - but we all could stand something to make our hair stand on end. I prefer sweet (vidalia or maya) onions to red ones and since I so seldom have heavy cream on hand I substituted sour cream and used real sugar - what the heck - one teaspoon of sugar is a small indulgence considering all of the cholesterol, right? BUT I can say that only because I divorced my diabetic second husband LOL.
All things in moderation and live life!
This was very good, but missing something. I think I will crumble some fried bacon into the leftovers.
This soup is super rich, chunky and delicious! For those times when you don't want to worry about calories!
This was tasty but very cheesy...I tasted it and decided I would prefer a little more tomato flavor so I added a second can of tomatoes. that made it perfect for me thanks for the recipe. I pureed this in the blender and used lower fat ingredients
Okay so it's rich, high in calories, cholesterol, blah blah blah. Make this soup and I promise you won't care a fig about any of that... it's Amazing! A wonderfully delicious comfort food that is also company-worthy should you want an impressive first course at your next dinner party. Good job Chrystal!
Delicious! However, don't expect the soup to look like your typical red tomato soup; it's quite pink from all the cream/milk/cream cheese.
Made a good creamy soup. I added another can of tomatoes as did another reviewer.
My only question is this:
Blue cheese, cream cheese, milk, heavy craem, then Splenda? What's the point? It' like having a triple bacon cheese burger, giant fries, and ordering a Diet Coke. Not much sense
I used 6 oz feta instead of 1/4 cup blue cheese and 1/2 cup vitamin D milk instead of the mixture of heavy cream and milk. The soup was easy and quick to make, but a little flavorless. It needed a lot of salt added to it, which I don't really like to do.
