“for being so easy, this soup will knock your socks off! totally vegetarian and is really great with some crusty bread or some finely shredded cheddar cheese and/or sour cream on top!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. pour salsa into a large sauce pan and heat on medium heat.
  2. rinse beans in a collander, then add beans and broth to salsa. bring to a boil and let simmer for 15 minutes.
  3. in the meantime, mince cilantro. use a knife or a food processor. set cilantro aside.
  4. after about 15 minutes of simmering, remove about 1/2 of the soup from the pan and put it in a food processor. puree the soup (it will become thicker) and then put the pureed soup back into the pan. continue to simmer.
  5. add minced cilantro and lime juice to soup.
  6. cook soup for a few more minutes (5 or so). the longer you cook it, the more it will reduce and become thicker. eat as is or add cheese/sour cream on top as a garnish if you desire.
