I needed a checklist for vegetable beef stew. The idea of salsa got my interest. So I followed your recipe. My suggestion is to use canned tomatoes instead of salsa. For our taste the salsa made it too sweet.

Down with a cold so needed some soup bad! I didn't have V-8 or Tomato juice so I used a liter of spicy bloody mary mix and water which made it very spicy (horseraddish). I liked the salsa idea and will implement that in other recipes too. I added fresh broccoli and yellow squash since I didn't have lima beans or peas available. Served with homemade bread. Great meal! Complements from my 10 year old as well.
