Black Bean and Salsa- Another Day, Another Soup

I might have inherited it from my father, for his meals are not complete without a soup (the bortsh type though). I find soups to be acting like a balm for the stomach, and one cannot go wrong with them, seriously!
And anytime I cook beans, I save some for soups- and such is the story of this fellow here. After we enjoyed the black beans in quesadilla and as dip for corn tortillas, the next in line was the soup.
I got the inspiration from a Special Edition of Family Fun- Dinnertime. Although the recipe called for store bought salsa, I decided to customize mine at home: tomatoes, jalapenos, onion, garlic, red wine vinegar, chilies...on the fly, indeed! Did not dice the salsa too fine- I love texture in my soups! The black beans beautifully complemented the heat in it- and a treat it was!
