Add sauteed red, yellow peppers, 2 cloves garlic, onion, reduced broth, one can of beans whole, double cumin, add cilantro and sour cream at the end. Try with 2 cans of rotel instead of salsa!

Very Good! Simple and easy - I always use homemade salsa instead of store-bought chunky salsa, yumm!

I have made this twice the first time i made it by the recipe this time I made it with chicken broth since I didn't have vegetable, and I sprinkled with Mexican cheese. I also added a full small bottle of a very tomato heavy salsa. It was amazing. The extra salsa really made it more flavorful and it is pretty easy to add at the end if you think it needs it. I think the type of salsa changes the flavor alot and is a heat way to experiment.
