  1. In a large pot, saut√© the garlic and onion in the olive oil.

  2. Stir in the meat and brown, breaking it up as you stir.

  3. Stir in everything else and cook over medium-high heat until the meat is cooked through. Stir frequently to avoid any burning on the bottom of your pot. If you need extra liquid, you can always stir in a little chicken broth to get the consistency you like. But I found that the salsa was enough. Do what suits your tastes.

  4. Allow to cool and serve.

  5. Note: If you can manage it, store this overnight and enjoy the next day. The flavor is even better on the second day when the flavors have really melded. Yum!
