2 pounds firm, ripe tomatoes, cored and cut into 1-inch pieces
2 pounds (about 3 large) potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
6 to 7 cups water
2 chicken bouillon cubes
3 sprigs fresh rosemary, or 1 1/2 teaspoons dried, crumbled

1 teaspoon herbs de Provence
1 teaspoon lemon pepper seasoning
3 dried red chilies, or to taste (optional)

Lemon juice, to taste

In a large saucepan or casserole set over moderate heat, warm the oil until hot, add the garlic and cook, stirring, 1 minute. Add the tomatoes, potatoes and salt and pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes. Add enough water to cover the vegetables, the bouillon cubes, herbs, lemon pepper, and chilies. Add salt and pepper to taste, bring to a boil and simmer, skimming and stirring occasionally, for 15 minutes or until vegetables are tender.
