Creamy Rotel Tomato Soup
This is a quick and easy soup to make with canned tomatoes and milk, but sauteed chopped
onion and garlic give it a homemade touch but what's different is adding Rotel tomatoes as well for a slight Kick.
What you NEED:
4 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup chopped onion
2 cloves garlic diced
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
3 cups milk
2 teaspoons honey
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon (scant) ground black pepper
2 cans (14.5 ounces each) diced tomatoes, undrained
1 can Rotel tomatoes
You can top with Sour Cream and some fresh grated Parmesan, if you like
How to Make this soup:
In a large saucepan, heat butter over medium-low heat. Add chopped onion and garlic; cook,
stirring, until tender. Stir flour into the vegetable mixture, stirring until well mixed.
Gradually stir in milk and add the honey, salt, and pepper. Continue to heat, stirring,
until the mixture thickens and begins to boil.
Dice all tomatoes smaller or puree in a blender or processor, if desired. Heat tomatoes in
a separate saucepan then gradually add them to the first mixture, stirring constantly.
Top with Sour Cream and Parmesan Cheese if you like and DO add Crackers!! Mmmmm GOOD
