I just made the salsa myself mixing and partially blending 1 big tomato, half onion chopped, green coriander (cilantro) and adjusted the taste with salt and pepper.

At the moment I did not have canned kidney beans at home, but since I wanted to this in any case, I used dried kidney beans and I cooked them with the pressure cooker until done.

Finally this came together delicious and very tasty; I used this as side dish! This can be used as dip but and as side dish as well. For the top layer I used sliced cheddar cheese but I did not use the monterey jack cheese as this was not available.
