This has the down home earthy flavor that all good soups should have. I had a leftover baked potato when I made this last, so I cubed it up and threw it in for some extra bulk. Sometimes I used canned chipotle pepper instead of poblanos. This one is easy to make your own – so many extras go so well with the ingredients.

Just grab a box of Roasted Tomato Parmesan Bisque from Plentiful Pantry and add some water and simmer for 25 minutes – that is literally all you have to do to get the creamiest, richest bisque your kitchen has ever produced !
The flavor profile of the soup is GREAT. It takes like you roasted tomatoes, cooked them down with garlic and a nice parmesan rind, the pureed and strained the whole thing. Of course, that would take hours. And this soup….under 1/2 hour and no sweat on your brow! Try serving with a dollop of low fat sour cream.

This sooooo takes the place of a regular grilled cheese – not quite your local diner fare, but very satisfying. It is tasty and fat free cheese slices do not taste like cardboard like they did 10 years ago. They are creamy and cheesy and this is an awesome sandwich.

Tomato Soup – approximately 1 cup = 100 calories for several brands in the carton. And to me, the soups in the carton are much better than the canned ones. I swear I can taste the can when I eat some brands 🙁
Spray pan with Pam and heat – make sure pan is good and hot on medium high heat. Make sandwich of the bread and cheese. Spray outsides of the sandwich with 5 sprays each of ICBINB. Place in pan and cook 1-2 minutes or so each side or until brown and cheese is melted. Meanwhile heat the soup in a pot and ladle into a mug.
