Recipes for a Broken Man with a Broken Tooth

I received my first ever root canal yesterday and my tooth is in rough shape. I was ordered to not chew on one side of my mouth and avoid crunchy foods for a couple weeks until the permanent cap can be put on.

In the mean time I am suffering in severe pain for what, I've been told, may last a few days. I'm relegated to eating soft/liquid foods that required little to no chewing. Not that I'm against the classic tomato soup, but does anyone have any creative ideas for savory recipes or food ideas that I can slurp down? I'm currently staring at a fresh batch of salsa that I can't touch and would love to hear anything that may skew southwest and/or spicy.
