You are going to love this soup.  Not only do the flavors blend so well, but it is super easy.  Easier in fact than just about any soup I've ever made.  Plus once you get it going you have an hour to sit & prop up your feet.  People will think you slaved over this one when all along you were really taking a nap;)

*{you can also use a blender but remember that blending hot liquids can be dangerous if not done properly.  if using a blender, remove liquid from heat for 10 minutes, transfer to blender & fill no more than half way.  leave the corner of the lid open to allow steam to escape & cover with a kitchen towel. pulse a few times & then process on high until smooth.  work in batches until completely done}
