This recipe is very close to the one I use. I had been looking for the recipe in a scaleable format so that I can make it for a crow. Now I know what to buy at the market.

I make my own veggie broth in place of the canned broth. I just saute some onion & garlic or onion, bell pepper, celery mix (whatever's in the fridge or freezer) in olive oil and add some chile powder and add water to make the broth, then stir in the salsa and canned beans.
