I'm not sure why, since the salsa I used was mild, but it was really spicy! I even cut the cumin to a little over 1/2 tsp. I had about 1/4 C of sun-dried tomatoes and thought I had diced tomatoes, but no deal. So I added a full 15 oz can of corn to compensate. Didn't use the cilantro and used a colby/jack cheese. Nice flavor. Just a little too spicy for our liking.
