My sister created this recipe, and then my husband and I adapted it to our tastes. It is creamy, spicy, comfort food for us. We always serve it with a side of baked tortilla chips for dunking.

Fabulous recipe! Loved the creamy, cheesey texture and the spice from the salsa and taco seasoning. Served with taco chips and sour cream. Nice change from chili.
