Recipe by LainieBug

I got this recipe from a co-worker, who brought the dish to one of our potlucks. It's actually a loaf of French bread with a filling.

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
