  1. Wow! What flavor!! I had leftover homemade salsa. All raw. I chopped it up with the black beans. Dumped it in small sauce pan, added Better Than Bullion beef broth, sprinkled more garlic powder and cumin over it giving it a good stir. It simmered close to 1/2 hour. Topped with finely chopped green onion and tbs of sour cream. I ate it as my main-meal supper! I really enjoyed this recipe using my own highly-seasoned salsa!
  2. We loved this soup! So simple to make and great flavor. I used a medium-hot salsa that gave it just a bit of bite. Also love that it is so high in fiber and uses ingredients I always have on hand. Will make this one often!


<p>I recently celebrated my 19th anniversary living in SW Florida. I moved here from Massachusetts, just north of Boston. As much as I miss family back home, I truly love living here - the beaches, the tropical beauty, the people, and the weather (except the hurricanes!). Everyday is just another day in Paradise. I work at the new international airport here in Fort Myers. I have an opportunity to meet many different and interesting people from around the world. I've had an interest in cooking since I was a little boy, following my grandmother around the kitchen. Since I wasn't blessed with any artistic or musical talent, I think cooking was my way of being creative. My passion is my family and friends. My second passion is cooking for them. My favorite way to entertain is informally...brunches, cookouts, and small dinner parties. Just relaxing, enjoying each other's company, some good food and drink, and a little fun are the only rules of the house.</p>
