This is truly a teen's food. They gobbled it up! I don't know whether it was the salsa or the combination of french fried onions and cheese that didn't agree with me. This is probably no fault of the recipe. Everyone has individual tastes and this satisfies some. Thanks for posting. I am sure this one will got to college with our son.
