Made for ZWT-8 Family Picks & a Tex-Mex nite as a starter to accompany Easy Mexican Mac and Cheese by FlaKeysJen. I used a med-heat salsa, left out the black beans as a pers pref & otherwise made it as written. I really liked the combo of flavours & esp appreciated the variety of textural components. It was chunky, tasty & suited our preferences extremely well. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us.
This was very good and less guilty than most of the food we eat during football season! So I love that! I think next time I will leave the lettuce and onions off, then heat in the oven till bubbly, and then add them + some jalapenos to the top! I can't wait to try it again! Thanks for posting! [Made for Holiday tag 2009]
Yummy! I made this yesterday as a healthier dip for watching my Seahawks take on the Redskins at our football party. The dip was a hit and everyone loved it! GO HAWKS! :)
