Notes

**My favorite coconut milk and salsa verde both come from Trader Joe’s. I love their reduced fat coconut milk and their salsa verde is so good. But of course, you can use any brands you’d like.
I love lots of beans in my soups, so occasionally I will add a third can of beans, it’s totally up to you.
If you don’t want too much kick, you can cut back to ½ of a jalapeño. You may want to start with half and if you want more kick, add some more.
The coconut milk adds such great flavor, so even if you’re not a fan of coconut, don’t leave it out. My son isn’t a fan and he loves this soup.
