Spicy Tomato Soup

{with a hint of blue cheese}

don’t let the blue cheese scare you. this is the best tomato soup recipe i’ve ever eaten. ever.  just ask stevie.

he won’t lie for me just to promote my tomato soup.

Now, if I’ve already offended you with the suggestion of blue cheese, don’t get your panties in a ruffle.

You just use a little—for a complex layer of flavors—- and I highly doubt you could tell it had blue cheese in it, if you didn’t already know.

Try it and you could always substitute the cheese if you have serious issues with blue cheese.

The other two stars of the show are sriracha and a large can of cento tomatoes.

Sriracha is a deliciously-hot-addictive sauce  that has seductive powers unlike any hot sauce

you’ve ever had.  Your mouth might burn but it will not stop you from adding more.   A little squirt into soup is makes all the difference!

You’ll need these ingredients:

  • a few splashes of olive oil
  • 1 small onion
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic
  • 1 28 ounce can of tomatoes
  • 1 14 ounce can of diced tomatoes
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 2 T. honey
  • 1 small squirt of sriracha (more if you like really spicy–but start small)
  • handful of basil leaves
  • about an ounce of blue cheese (or your favorite easy melt cheese)
  • 1/3 cup of cream
  • kosher salt and pepper to taste

You’ll also need a submersion blender!

The directions:

  • In a large dutch oven, add a few tablespoons of olive oil.  Don’t measure, just swirl a few times.    
  • Then add the chopped onion and garlic and salt to taste and then saute for about 5 minutes.  
  • Add the tomatoes in their juice.  
  • Then add the rest of the ingredients except the cream and let it simmer for about 10 minutes.  
  • Use your submersion blender to achieve the consistency you’d like and then add cream.  
  • Taste it and reseason as necessary.  I almost always have to add more salt and more honey.  
  • And if you accidentally go heavy on the sriracha, add a little more cream to balance the heat.  
  • Serve with artisan bread or crackers and prepare to be lavished with ” mmmm’s”  and gratitude.

Garnish with basil and enjoy!

  1. gonna try it! Do you have a good buffalo chicken dip? I LOVE it…take it everywhere and it’s gone in less than 10 minutes…you use blue cheese (Marie’s Blue Cheese) …so delicious!

  2. My husband and daughter love tomato soup. This one sounds delicious. And that hot sauce! We used it on PW’s Firecracker Shrimp at our Independence Day celebration and it was a huge hit. I still have some left in the bottle since it’s soooo hot. Thanks for the suggestion on how to use it up.

  3. Hey Edie…this looks YUMMO!!! My son loves tomato soup, so I shall give this one a whirl!

    Hope your getting all the things on your list done! 🙂 xxx

  4. Oh I’d love to try this. My love for spicy tomato soup started with a recipe for Pinto Bean Stew from the Kind Diet book by Alicia Silverstone. You should REALLY, really try that recipe! It’s so yummy. Made my dinner guests’ eyes water.

  5. Oooooh!
    Looks sooooo yummy!
    There is just nothing like a hot bowl of TOMATO soup!
    Campbell’s is even scrumptious…made with low-fat milk!
    I was just telling my hubby yesterday…
    next week we are going to have grilled cheese and tomato soup for dinner!
    He liked that idea!
    This soup sounds like fancied up tomato soup!
    Oh I know it is delish!

  6. Oh my HEAVENS!! I must try this one! I’m spending the next few days w/my parents and my Mom loves to try new recipes. Since I’m stuck on the couch, thanks to bedrest, I’ll ask her to make it for me. I know she’ll be all over it! Thanks for sharing!

  7. Sounds super yummy. I have never had Siracha-never even heard of it. Can’t wait to give this a try, especially with some fresh, out of the oven bread.

    Thanks for your sweet comments on my blog. I am so happy we are bloggy friends, too. 🙂


  8. That sounds wonderful and I’m totally not offended by the blue cheese, I’d eat it on or with ANYTHING practically. Oh, gosh you have me craving this!!!!!! This WILL be made in our household soon.

  9. YUM we LOVE tomato soup over here!! Definately trying this! I would do it tonight, but I don’t have any blue cheese. 🙁 I do have goat cheese or sour cream tho??? 🙂

  10. I have been lurking here for a long time. Thank you for sharing you heart so willingly. You bless more than you could possibly know by your honesty,and not to mention your recipe’s too!

    Thank you!

  11. Oh, Edie,dear. You have outdone yourself on this one. I just finished making some, and it is To. Die. For. I couldn’t find Cento tomatoes, so I used Hunt’s Fire Roasted diced tomatoes. Thanks for the recipe.

  12. Just made the soup. Very good. I realized just as I was throwing in the tomatoes that I forgot to get basil. Then, thankfully, I remembered I had some Buitoni pesto in the fridge. I put in 2-3 TB and it worked wonderfully!

  13. Edie, You are a genius! Just made this soup and it is the BEST tomato soup ever! Serving it with some grilled cheese sandwiches. Thank you for sharing.
