Bean Bacon Blue Cheese Tomato Soup

Kelly Roberts


The blue cheese gives this soup a little zing. I added the bacon, blue cheese crumbles and garlic croutons on top to really top this soup off. Very delicious!!!

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Oh, this soup is made for those blue cheese lovers out there. The blue cheese and cream cheese add some tang to the soup. Salsa is an unusual ingredient, but provides so much flavor and, combined with the beans, gives the soup some texture. Creamy and satisfying, this is the perfect soup for a cold night.
