Everyone at my table goes for this feel-good soup. It is quick when you’re pressed for time and beats fast food, hands down. —Darlis Wilfer, West Bend, Wisconsin

    buy a fifth can of beans,rinse and add some to each bowl if you like more texture. I use Sams fresh salsa instead of pico and eliminate the water. this tastes like the campbell soup black bean soup you used to be able to buy. garnish with sour cream. freezes well. good for a soup sale. my favorite!!!!

    For wink888: And a basic recipe: When in doubt, Google! Type in "what is Pico de gallo" and in 2 seconds 10,000 hits appear. There are hundreds of versions and I make a flavorful version with 3 different onions and fresh garlic. Best with fresh heirloom or home grown tomatoes in season. Can be doctored up with grocery store tomatoes in a pinch too.
