Spicy Gazpacho Served in a Roasted Bell Pepper

It’s almost summer and I love cold soup! I can’t believe I haven’t posted a recipe for gazpacho before this! I’ve made many variations of these over the years, so here’s just one example of what you can make. You don’t have to serve it in a bell pepper, but I like to because it’s fun. This is a great dish to make if it’s hot out and you don’t feel like cooking much! This recipe serves one to two people; double if you plan on serving more (use one yellow bell pepper for each person)
