A cold, refreshing, light soup that hits the spot every time. This version is almost like eating mild salsa as a soup base.
In a small skillet over medium heat, heat oil. Once it’s hot add garlic and saute garlic for 2 minutes. Remove pan from heat and place garlic into a large food processor.
Add 1/2 of all the veggies, and reserve the other half of the veggies to leave in chunks in the soup. Puree this mixture until finely mixed. Now add in the tomato juice, salt and pepper and hot sauce. Puree again and taste. Adjust seasonings if needed.
Pour the puree into a large bowl and pour the remaining veggies in. Give it a good stir. Let this soup chill in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes. The longer it sits the better the flavor!
Meanwhile prepare shrimp. Toss shrimp with old bay seasoning. Grill them over medium heat for 2 minutes per side until opaque.
Ladle soup into chilled bowls, top with shrimp, hard boiled egg, cilantro, avocado, and a squeeze of lime. Enjoy.

**Tip place tomato juice in the fridge a few hours before making the soup so that it is nice and cold.
Perfect rainy day soup and quick enough for mid-week supper! Great as a first course or as an entree with a nice spring mix salad and some wonderful crusty bread. And don’t forget about the rest of the bottle of white wine.
I found this copycat recipe online—it really does taste remarkably similar to Wendy’s Chili, only it’s a bit heartier than what I usually get when I hit my local drive-thru. Be warned, this recipe makes a ton—it’ll fill a 5 1/2-quart Dutch oven almost to the rim. Add cheese or sour cream if you like, but they’re really not needed here.
Collards, black-eyed peas and smoky bacon make this delicious take on Hopping John soup.
