This recipe is one from my friend Judith, who is a vegetarian. It's very tasty, and even carnivores won't miss the meat.

I really enjoyed this soup. I couldn't find mexican tomatoes so used salsa instead. That probably made the soup a bit more spicy than intended. I also only had 1 can of black beans so I used it and 1 can of kidney beans. Delicious
