Soups can either be kind or kindling, and this one is of the latter style! Pepped up with oregano and chilli flakes, this spicy soup features an iron-rich combination of rajma and Mexican salsa. Blanched and finely chopped tomatoes make the soup super tangy, and also impart a lasting good mouth-feel. The Spicy Salsa Bean Soup is indeed a fitting prelude to a heavy meal.

A truly Italian flavoured soup with tinges of chilli flakes and oregano. I would say that this soup is best made only with vegetable stock than water....And its quick too....try it !
