Comfort Food Spicy Tomato Soup

Comfort Food Spicy Tomato Soup-

I’m cooking up some yummy comfort food today. Our oldest granddaughter won’t eat tomato soup unless she has a grilled cheese sandwich to dip :-) That is the ultimate in comfort food. Roasted tomatoes give this yummy soup a wonderful full taste and the spices give it a little spicing up too.
