Soy sauce - but not what you think

Soy beans are a super source of protein, even out of the can. But the canned beans, although remarkably tender, are as bland as a corporate memo. To buck them up, I drained the beans and rinsed them thoroughly, then simmered them in Herdez Chipotle Salsa as the rice cooked and the sirloin tip roast finished up on the grill. They were good - and HOT! For a little less spice, cut the salsa with tomato sauce; for a lot less, just add a tablespoon of the chipotle to the tomato sauce.

These may be my new favorite barbecue beans.
