This was really, really good. It was way too easy to be that good, in fact. I sprinkled mine with cilantro. Yum!!!


I used black beans. My salsa itself is too bland, so I did add a few things to this "recipe" (it's so easy and versatile, I hesitate to call it that!). I added onion, garlic, red bell pepper, some zucchini (left over from minestrone, haha), and a few fresh baby spinach leaves, with some hot spices. Also added a little extra salsa to make it not as dense.

Yummy!  :)>>> I love just how SIMPLE this recipe is, and it's surprisingly quite tasty!! Haha, yeah it does look like a "Mexican glop," but it's a good glop! My grandmother loved it, too. I'll definitely be making this again and tweaking the recipe to fit whatever I currently have on hand. So easy!  =)


I make this all the time. It's one of my stand by recipes because I always have what it needs. I know add green and red peppers, onions and garnish with some green onions.


Delicious! My didn't really have the consistency of chili but still tasted good. I used black beans and a little over a cup of salsa. Served with the grandmas cornbread also a recipe on vegweb. Yummy!
