mmmmm....easy to make and easy to take! I like to serve this with Hawaiian Dinner Rolls or tortilla bread cut into quarters for easy appetizer-sized servings. Just right for grazing between plays. You can substitute the mild tomatillo salsa for a kickier habenero lime salsa if you like the heat! Naturally, you'll want to serve with margaritas :-)
