Tomato & Red Pepper soup

I found this recipe here. I, of course, cannot leave a recipe the same it seems. I always have a reason. :) The following is the my version.

Tomato & Red Pepper soup
1 small onion, chopped
3 tbs. olive oil
2 (14 oz.) cans Eden brand tomatoes & green chilies
1 (12 oz.) jar roasted red peppers, drained (actually any size jar is fine)
32 oz. chicken broth
1 tsp salt

Saute onion in oil until translucent. Add remaining ingredients. Simmer on low for 30 minutes. Blend soup with hand-held blender. Serve.

Using tomatoes with green chilies gives the soup a bite, but my reason for using them is that I couldn't find stewed tomatoes without additives. Next time I may try just plain Eden diced tomatoes. I did like it with what I used, but it was a bit peppery for dd.

It IS hard to find stewed tomatoes without weird things in them. Muir Glen does make them, and occasionally they go on sale here at some of the stores. It makes me sad because stewed tomatoes are my favorite--I think because my Mom uses them more than any other kind.

Thanks for posting this recipe. I'm going to file it away so I can make it some time.
