This is a great weeknight soup as it goes together fast, has lots of flavor and doesn’t make too much. Adding salsa to a soup is a great way to quickly add a lot of flavor. I like soup but many recipes just make too much for me. My sister shared this recipe with me a few years ago and reminded me of it the other day when we were visiting.
This is a great way to use a bit of sausage if you’ve used half a package for something else and have leftovers. We like kielbasa generally but it’s also good with beef sausage. Use whatever kind you like.
I make this even if I don’t have fresh cilantro but the fresh cilantro does add a lot.
