Ingredients
  • l large onion, diced
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced (or use ¼ tsp dried minced for each clove)
  • Olive oil
  • 2 - 28 to 32 oz cans tomatoes (I used “ready-cut” to keep it simple)
  • 32 oz bottle fire roasted (or sun-dried) tomatoes (Costco has them for the most reasonable price in larger quantities)
  • 2 - 8 oz cans tomato sauce
  • 2 - 6 oz cans tomato paste
  • 8 cups water (I added 8 - 10 chicken bouillon cubes for more flavor)
  • 2 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • 2 cups milk or cream
Instructions
  1. In a large soup kettle saute onion in olive oil until almost translucent.
  2. Add garlic and continue to saute a few minutes more. Add tomatoes, sauce and paste - along with water.
  3. Bring to a boil, cover and reduce heat to simmer for 30 minutes.
  4. Puree in blender until desired consistency.
  5. We put tortilla strips and a dab of sour cream on top!
