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. 
Heat oven to 375 degrees F.
2. 
Place chicken thighs in a baking dish. Spoon 2 tablespoons of the salsa over each piece. Top with half of the jalapeno slices. Bake at 375 degrees F for 35 minutes or until temperature reaches 160 degrees F on an instant-read thermometer.
3. 
In a medium-size saucepan, heat remaining salsa and jalapenos and beans about 2 minutes, until beans are heated through. Microwave brown rice following package directions. In a large serving bowl, gently mix rice and bean mixture. Serve with chicken.
