It's an odd combination, but it's surprisingly good! Instead of salsa, I used roma tomatoes, cilantro, and lime. I love the cilantro in it. I used a 15-bean combination instead of chickpeas. I also added red pepper flakes.

Wow, what a fantastic recipe and so very close to a typical African dish. We loved, loved, loved this. I made some minimal changes. Added an extra teaspoon of cumin because it is a flavour I really love, and used only 15 ounces of salsa, which was all I had on hand. Salsa isn't really an African ingredient, but its core ingredients are, so it would be fine to make up a salsa of tomato, onion, chillies, salt and coriander. I had worried that the end result might be too thin, but it was perfect -- almost stew-like. I will make this often. A perfect dish for a cool day. Thanks so very much for posting.

Today i make this soup for the 2nd time. i modify a bit the recipe, since i don't have peanut butter & peanuts at home. I just use buther and it comes out fantastic. I like to add cayenne as well. Great recipe. Thanks for sharing

Amazing! This soup has a unique flavor. I added some chicken chunks, and it was fantastic. It sounds strange, but it is worth trying!!! Next time I will add fresh tomato, peppers and onions instead of canned salsa. If you use salsa, get good stuff!

Very tasty with a nice texture. It was unlike the blended peanut soup that I've had before, much nicer. Thanks for sharing. I used chicken broth and chunky peanut butter.
