Kidney Bean Soup

Recipe by Viva Forever

This is a very easy to prepare and tasty recipe. I work and go to school full time so dont have time to prepare fancy stuff. This hardly takes half hour to prepare and very filling and delicious. I got this from a turkish friend of mine, but am not sure if its turkish.Dont matter, taste good enough to me.

Oh my!!! This is a winner!!! I just finished a big bowl of this soup on this bitter cold day. Wow, is this ever good! The combination of ingredients is "right-on" for a hearty, comforting soup. We particularly like the addition of the salsa in it to really give it a hearty flavor. Can't wait to make this again, VivaForever.
