Clean Tomato Soup

When finished I took 1/2 and froze it, the other 1/2 I added Peppers to! Since I am trying to stay away from meat this week, i then took 1/2 of the peppers and added chicken for my husband for a complete meal for work! I will eat mine with beans (almost like a chili)
***My husband said it was spicy- so maybe omit the black pepper!
