    Thanks for posting this recipe. I had soooooo much tomato's from my 1 plant last season that I need more recipes to use them in. This year I will have another bounty of tomatos so I will share this soup with the neighbors also. Looks really good and I love the addition of cilantro.

    I`m going to make this recipe tonight and I will definately give a review. It looks awesome though, I can tell already. It`s amazing how hard it is to find a recipe in a cookbook for tomato soup that uses fresh tomatos. And I really like the idea of using hot sauce.

    Good soup. Raided my garden for some fresh black prince heirloom tomatoes and had to use some of them to make the tomato paste. Notice you didn't call out any salt and pepper. Didn't need it anyhow.

    This looks very good and with fresh tomatoes just around the corner, i'm aving this. Thanks. By the way, I tried to rate this as a 5 and it came out a 4. This drag the fork thing is a pain. I hope others notify kristopher, as I have. What is wrong with a one fork, drop down and two forks, etc. Then you could just tap what you want and be done with it. This needs changing. Sorry about the 4. Good recipes.
