SaLsA & tAcO sOuP

I've been looking at the Prudence Pennywise blog for well over a year now, and these two recipes are probably very close to our very favorite of hers! I'm not a big tomato fan - I mostly just don't like them chunky. So, the part where the blender comes in to mix the salsa is AWESOME! Both of these are super quick and super easy! They come in handy when you're asked to bring something to a party or pot-luck dinner, and they will always win you many many compliments! Also note, her recipe does not call for any meat in the soup, which I LOVE! But if you are looking to feed a lot of people, or just want to add some to make it a little more hearty, I recommend a can of chicken.

Blender Salsa

salt to taste
