ROASTED SALSA SOUP WITH BLACK BEAN
It's true. I will admit it. Salsa is my favorite salsa. Sometimes I wish I could eat it with a spoon-like soup. That's what I did. I combined the homemade salsa with roasted veggies and black beans to make it more filling. Then, I added fresh cilantro and lime to brighten it up. The soup is vibrant and flavorful. It's giving me all the salsa vibes. I would not hesitate to add some tortilla chips to the soup! This soup is based on my Fire Roasted Salsa recipe. It is one of my favorite salsa recipes. This soup is made from fresh vegetables, which are baked until they become sweetened and caramelized at the edges. It's a delicious flavor!
