Author Notes: If you're looking for an incredibly fast yet delicious soup, look no further. Instead of chopping and cooking all the ingredients for traditional black bean soup, use a jar of salsa instead, preferably fire-roasted.

In This Recipe


  1. Place salsa in a large saucepan over medium-high heat and bring to a boil.
  2. Reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes, or until most of the excess liquid has been reduced.
  3. Add hominy, stock, and lime juice. Cook 15 to 20 minutes, or until heated through. If you prefer a thicker soup, you can remove and puree 1 cup of bean mixture and stir it back into soup.
