What a great idea for a quick lunch or even a dinner. The combination of flavors went so well together. I used a can of Rotel tomato sauce that has green chilies in it and a fairly hot salsa so we had lots of zip in this which we loved. I did toast my bread for about 5 minutes before adding the meat mixture hoping to cut back on soggy which it did. I'll be making this one again. Thanks LainieBug. Made for PAC Fall 2012
Oh, My! This was absolutely wonderful! I will make this again and again! So easy and quick, and delivers big taste. I did make a couple of changes, just because of what I had on hand. Instead of tomato sauce and diced green chilies, I used a can of Rotel tomatoes with green chilies. I used some of Chef #516926 's Slim's Hot Pepper Sauce in place of the salsa. I used Monterey Jack for the cheese. I know it looks like I totally changed your recipe, Laini, but I never would have done this if not for your starter recipe. Thnx, so much, for sharing.
Dee-licious! As I made this for me (DH doesn't like anything with flavor) I used a baguette instead of a big French loaf and I still have at least 2/3 left, cool!. Since I avoid hamburger as much as I can this was made with veggie crumbles. The flavors come together wonderfully and I'm really looking forward to the leftovers tomorrow. Made for PAC, Fall '09.
