Author Notes: A great way to use winter tomatoes (pretty to look at, bland as can be to eat) in a healthy, filling soup. Those who are not dieting as part of their New Year's resolution can add chicken and cheese to make the soup more hearty. The lime juice gives this soup a nice kick, and gives it the flavor that makes it filling. - mama iris
