These were delicious! I invited the neighbors over and fixed these for our dinner and we all enjoyed the meal. I did add a little more of everything except the salsa and they went home happy and with the recipe. Definately a keeper and really so easy especially if you do a little of the items in advance like the salsa, rub and chopping of the lettuce and tomatoes and gratting the cheese. Thank you for "another" fabulous dish and a keeper. Made for 2013 Zaar Cookbook tag.
