      Delicious! I used medium salsa and it had just the right amount of kick to it. Thank you.

      This is so easy and full of flavor! I've made it a few times now and we'll keep having it. I have to leave out the red pepper and use mild salsa for the kids. Thanks for sharing this.

      This was a very flavorful soup - tangy with a stiff bite. At first I thought the cumin would be too much so I added less but then tasted and decided to add all of it. I pureed 3/4 of it in the blender and kept the rest of the beans whole. Instead of chicken I used vegetable broth and accidentally drained the liquid from one of two 15 ounce cans of beans I used but did not compensate with extra broth. I also used medium salsa and garnished with red onion and fresh cilantro. Also, this recipe makes more like 4-6 servings, not 8-10 (and I'm not saying that just because I liked it). Thanks!
