Zesty Tomato Soup

I decided to share the soup I am making for dinner tonight with you. Paired up with a salad and warm bread - it is a perfect weeknight winter meal. So easy to make!

1 medium onion (chopped)
2-3 cloves of garlic (minced)
1 Tbs olive oil
1 tsp cumin (or more to taste)
48 oz bottle of spicy hot V-8 juice
1 can diced tomato, undrained
1 can chicken broth (about 2 cups)
green onion (chopped)
monteray jack cheese

Cook onion and garlic in olive oil until tender in a large pot. Add cumin, V-8, tomatoes, and chicken broth. Bring to boil then turn down heat and simmer for about 30 minutes to blend flavors. In bowls place a small amount of cheese, pour soup into bowls over the cheese and garnish with green onion.

Here is a layout I did for my kitchen album that features this recipe:

Enjoy and keep warm!
