Try my lazy tomato bisque:

Toss four cans of Italian stewed tomatoes (the kind with bits of celery and onion in it) into a big pot. Toss in three cans of chicken broth. Bring to a rolling boil, then slowly add cream cheese, one pat at a time, until you get a nice brilliant orange colour. Season with salt and ground pepper. You can adjust the recipe down for 1-2 servings by using one can of stewed tomatoes and a can of chicken broth, and just boiling it longer before you add the cream cheese.

If you're less lazy, you can toss in a diced onion, a cup of finely chopped carrots (I use the Cuisinart), a cup of diced celery (also Cuisinart), and a handful of ripped up cilantro and parsley, and a handful of garlic cloves you've peeled and crushed with the side of a cleaver. I've done this and tried it both finely blended after cooking, and with all the vegetable chunks intact, and I like it better chunky; most people I've fed this to like it better blended, though.

Oh, also, you need to let it boil for a few minutes after adding the cream cheese, for it to thicken a bit. If you're in a hurry you can cheat with a bit of corn starch or flour.
