Mexican Soup with Dried Tomatoes

Here is a tasty soup that I made recently. I love to come up with recipes in the winter that use the food I have grown in my garden and put up for winter use. If you aren't dairy free like I am - this soup would be really tasty with shredded cheese.

Mexican Soup with Dried Tomatoes
6 cups broth (I used turkey broth I had made with the turkey bones after Thanksgiving, but chicken or veggie broth would work just fine)
1 cup salsa (I used my home canned but I am sure store bought would work fine)
3/4 cup dried tomatoes, sliced in long strips
1 teaspoon ground cumin
2 cups corn (frozen, canned or fresh will all work)
1 tablespoon lime or lemon juice
Combine all ingredients, bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for at least 10 minutes.
