This may be a dumb question but what size jar of salsa am I supposed to use?  I'm guessing its a smaller jar but I just want to make sure because I'm still new to cooking on my own... actually last night was the first time I really cooked dinner for me and my family.  Please help asap!!!!


I make something pretty much like this and I love it!!! I also put some diced black olives into the mix.


i made something really similar when trying to just throw something together from what i had in my cupboards.  i used brown rice instead of white though and added some black olives and  nutritional yeast.  it was really good!


this was wonderful.  i added some spices for a bit more flavor but it was very good.  i just became a vegan.  and this site has helped me out so much.  thank you.
