  1. Wash the cilantro well and chop.
  2. Dice the onions and garlic.
  3. Place a medium size deep frying pan or wide sauce pan. Turn on medium heat.
  4. Add the diced onions and garlic to the pan and cook for 5 minutes or until cooked.
  5. Add the tomatoes, 1 tsp salt, salsa, and the chili powder. Stir well and cook for 3 minutes.
  6. Open the can of black beans and add to the pan.
  7. Open the can of soup and add to the pan. Add 3/4ths of the chopped cilantro.
  8. Mix well and stir once in a while for 3 mins.
  9. Transfer to a serving dish. Garnish with the rest of the cilantro.
