Black bean soup

Black Bean soup
1 c. salsa (I used a mango peach salsa from Costco but I have also used mild pace salsa- so any kind you choose.)
2 cans (15 1/2 0z) black beans rinsed and drained
2 c. chicken broth
1 tsp lime juice
2 Tbsp fresh cilantro
sour cream

Heat the salsa in a saucepan over medium heat, stirring often for 5 min. Add beans and broth. Bring to a boil then lower the heat and simmer covered for 15 mins. Let cool slightly, then ladle half of the soup into a food processor or blender and puree it. Return the pureed soup to pot. Stir in the lime juice and chopped cilantro and heat through. Serve topped with sour cream, chips, lime wedges and more cilantro. *I just use a hand emulsion blender and blend to desired consistency.
