Cheddar Cheese and Tomato Soup

This is for Julie C, who in the 1/7 newsletter wanted suggestions for soups that could be made for her friend's husband, who is undergoing treatment for oral Cancer. Tomato soup is one option that immediately came to mind. If you don't want to use beer or ale in this recipe, substitute with additional chicken broth or water. Other ideas are onion soup, pumpkin soup, butternut squash, cream of broccoli, cauliflower or spinach and egg drop soup. Let us know if you need recipes for any of these suggestion.
