Another great Moni Soup Recipe. As with many of my Moni Meal Recipes, I created this based on all that I hade in my pantry. Viola! I just love the flavors. I love the texture and you will not miss any meat! This is so easy and using a bottle of salsa is so handy and flavorful. You could add some sour cream on top as well to finish it off. 1 tsp oil 1 tbs minced garlic 2 cups water or vegetable broth, low-sodium 1/2 tsp chipotle chile powder 3 (15-oz) cans black beans, rinsed and drained 1 (8-oz) bottle salsa 1 tbs fresh lime juice 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro, optional 1/2 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
