2 cans of Campbell's tomato soup
2 regular size (8oz maybe) evaporated milk (you can use 2 cups cream too but evap. milk makes it creamy and is less fattening I use it in all my soups that call for cream to make them lower fat. You can get evap. milk in skim FYI)
1 or 2 cans of stewed tomatoes (I usually use Italian stewed, but any work)
1 cup fat free sour cream
about 1 cup fresh chopped basil or 2-3 tablespoons of dried basil do it to taste
for a little extra flavor you can throw in a slice or two of chopped bacon, maybe not a good idea if your going for low fat though.
put it all together stir and heat.
Hope you enjoy it!
