“From "The PDQ Vegetarian Cookbook" by Donna Klein. Kidney beans or black eyed peas can replace the pinto beans (I used kidney beans as that was what I had on hand). I used 19oz cans as that was also all I had on hand. This turned out better than I expected (it seemed a strange idea to me to put salsa into something I was cooking). I used fresh onion and garlic (the original recipe called for processed).”
