“I picked up this recipe when we visited a roadside souvenir stand on a fall trip to New England. Use whatever heat salsa you like and replace the diced tomatoes with part or all Rotel tomatoes, depending on how spicy you like your food! You may want to reduce the amount of cumin- start with 1 teaspoon and then add more if you'd like later, before simmering it for the 6 minutes.”
