How To Make The Best Salsa

Want to know how to make the best salsa? Throw in some fresh tomatoes and jalapenos to make it thick and chunky. If you like your salsa on the spicy side, feel free to use more jalapenos (and leave in the seeds).

Directions
1. 
In colander, drain 1/2 cup of the salsa. Seed and finely chop half of the jalapeno; thinly slice remaining half. In large bowl mash beans with vegetable masher or fork. Stir in muffin mix, drained salsa, 2-1/2 teaspoons chili powder, and chopped jalapeno.
2. 
In 12-inch skillet heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high heat. Add four 1/2-cup mounds of bean mixture to skillet. Flatten mounds with spatula to 3-1/2-inch-round cakes. Cook for 3 minutes on each side until browned. Remove from skillet. Repeat with remaining oil and bean mixture.
3. 
In bowl combine sour cream and 1/2 teaspoon chili powder. Top cakes with remaining salsa, sliced jalapeno, and seasoned sour cream. Makes 4 (2-cake) servings.
