    pattikay in L.A.'s Note:

    This is a fun and flavorful recipe I got off the side of a box of frozen phyllo dough. The recipe has good flavor, but is not particularly spicy, so feel free to kick up the heat to suit your tastes.

      I didn't use a spicy salsa and wish I had. I would add more cheese next time and perhaps use pepper jack for additional flavor.

      A quick, tasty dinner that is easy to put together in just a few minutes. I took your advice a spiced them up a little by using hot salsa. I think a 1/4 cup of black beans would have been tasty as well. Thank You for sharing, we enjoyed these. Nick's Mom
