Speedy Salsa Soup

Speedy Salsa Soup

This soup is one of those great last minute suppers when you want something flavorful but don’t have the time to put into it. You can make it exactly like I did in this tutorial or just use the basic premise of the recipe and customize it to your tastes or what you have on hand. I seldom make this soup the same way twice! It is reminiscent of Taco Soup, but with fewer ingredients and even less fuss (is that even possible?).

I had a signing in Greenville, SC last night and am headed to Greensboro, NC today with more signings and meet and greets in Southern Pines, NC and Charlotte later this week before I finish up my very last week of touring and head home to get back on a regular work schedule.

Ingredients

  • 24 ounce jar mild or hot salsa (about 2.5 cups - can use less if you want)
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon cilantro
  • 2 cans black beans, rinsed
  • 1 can corn, undrained
  • 3 cups broth (I use chicken bullion cubes to make my own and save money)
  • 2 cups shredded cooked chicken (about)
  • 1 cup heavy ceeam (optional)
