Salsa cream cheese soup - THM S

OK, so I found this soup recipe on someone else's blog a few months back, and I can't for the life of me remember where I found it. I've Googled different word combinations and keep coming up blank, so I'm really sorry to the person whose recipe this is, that I can't give you due credit.

In any case, I'm in love with this recipe. I'm calling it the best soup recipe ever, because it is so easy to make, and absolutely divine to eat. In fact, I made it for my brother-in-law recently and he said it was, "The bomb". (I'm not sure if that's just a New Zealand saying, but if it is, it translates to, "Wicked awesome.") (Is that just another New Zealand saying? If it is, that translates to, "Tasty, TASTY soup, sis".)

Check it out - just three ingredients!


1. Heat the salsa and chicken stock in a medium saucepan on a medium high heat.
2. Add the cream cheese and stir it through until it melts into the soup. You can either blend the soup to get a really smooth and creamy consistency, or you can leave it a little bit chunky. Both ways are good!

If three ingredients just doesn't seem like enough to you, feel free to add in more. Sometimes I throw in leftover shredded roast chicken, or a bit of chopped carrot or zucchini. It just means you need to cook the soup for a bit longer, to give the vegetables time to soften.

  1. What an interesting combo - I admit I would have trouble with only 3 ingredients - I put way too much in every dish I concoct but I bet this is good.

    1. It's really good. But then salsa makes anything taste good. Actually, so does cream cheese. You really can't go wrong with this recipe.

  2. Hi Emma, I had to stop and think about this one, but then I reazlized that it would probably taste a bit like a creamy tomato soup, which would be really tasty! Thanks for sharing this with Sunday Night Soup Night, look forward to seeing you again soon!

    1. Yeah, I probably should have named it something relating to what it tastes like. Maybe cream of salsa soup, or something like that. It really is yummy.
