Recipe by Sweet Diva MJ

From Taste of Home. We love Mexican food in our house, and I can't go wrong when I serve these. They are quick and easy - and always gladly received by my family.

Love the way that these are made in the oven rather than on the stove top. Next time I think I will use some cooking spray or a little olive oil instead of butter. We felt there was just too much salsa in the filling and would have preferred less, using the remaining as an optional side/dip. Thanks for a great recipe!
