“This is so simple and fast! I saw it on the Real Simple TV show. It is easy, of course, simple and it tastes great. Just get fresh salsa from the grocery store and open some cans. Depending on how much or how little broth you add determines whether you use as a hot bean dip or a soup.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  2. When oil is warm, add drained fresh salsa to pan and saute for a few minutes to lose the "raw/fresh" element.
