- 16 oz jar salsa
- 4 oz can of green chilies

- Heat then eat!
This yummy soup is quick, easy, and healthy. If you don't have an immersion blender, heat the ingredients on the stove then transfer sections to your blender or you can leave it chunky. Makes about four servings (depending how much you want to eat at once).
I ate this paired with one of my Mexican fiesta salads:
Spinach, yellow summer squash, zucchini, cherry tomatoes, silken tofu blended with salsa (fabulous dressing)
This meal is both satisfyingly delicious and very healthy (key after a good workout) with ample amounts of protein (tofu and black beans) plus a gazillion veggies. Blending silken tofu with salsa (and other liquids-I've done balsamic vinegar and Bragg's liquid aminos) creates a great salad dressing filled with protein!
