This is a great, easy recipe on those nights you want warm soup but don't have time to simmer for hours. I didn't have to simmer mine for the whole hour; 45 minutes did the trick. I also didn't bother adding the salt because my salsa had quite a bit to begin with.

Great, thick soup - the salsa really gives a lot of flavour, I think I'll even reduce the amount of salt next time! Very easy to make. Thanks for a tasty lunch soup recipe!
