Meal Monday: Spicy Tomato Soup


This recipe will forever bring me back to my college days.  I attended Western Michigan University and am a proud alumni of Alpha Chi Omega.  College was four of the best years of my life - I lived on my own for the first time, met my husband, joined a sorority, made so many lifelong friends and truly had the best experience. 

We had to live in the sorority house our sophomore and junior years and there were many pro's and con's to living in a house with forty 19-21 year old women :)  One of the biggest pro's was that we had a Chef!  We loved one of Chef Stan's recipes: spicy tomato soup.  We had it every other Monday for lunch with grilled cheese and mini-corn dogs, without fail.  When it came time to say goodbye to sorority house living, I made sure I had that recipe in hand.  I've changed the original recipe a little but almost 4 years after graduating from college, I still make it often when I'm in the mood for something quick and easy, especially in the winter!

Shopping List
1 bottle of Spicy Hot V8
3 packages of chicken flavored ramen noodles
1 cup milk
1 cup water


Directions
1) In a large pot, combine your Spicy V8, milk and water.  Stir to mix and then bring to a boil.  This is the longest step - takes about 15 minutes to actually boil for me!


2) While in the original packaging, crack each square of ramen noodles into 4 sections - do not crush the bag.  You want to have longer noodles.  Open each bag and drop into the boiling V8 mixture.

3) Each ramen noodle bag will come with it's own spice packet.  Only put two of these three packets into your V8 mixture.


4) Return to a boil and cook for 5 minutes.


5) Turn off heat and let sit for 5 minutes.

This is nothing fancy but it sure is good on a cold day. I like to sprinkle mozzarella or parmesan cheese on top. For just Nick and I, we usually have quite a bit of leftovers (I actually think it tastes even better the second day) so we will eat this for a couple of days = less cooking for me!  Thanks Chef Stan!  Enjoy!

  2. This sounds delicious! I will definitely make it on the next cold, rainy day! I can't believe you had a chef. I am SO jealous. If any of the sororities (a whole 3!) at my school had had one, I would have definitely pledged!

  6. Oh, I love tomato soup and that sounds delicious! I went to college at a small, Christian school in Arkansas and we didn't have any sororities. Being a part of a sorority is always something I wanted to do, though. I'm glad you had such a good experience. I'll live vicariously through you. :)
