Spicy bean and butternut squash soup

1 large clove garlic

1 tablespoon olive oil

2 teaspoons salt

15 ounce can red beans, drained

one cup salsa

10 ounce bag cubed butternut squash

Cut potatoes in half. Cover with water and two teaspoons salt. Simmer until potatoes are tender, about ten minutes. Drain.
