I found this recipe on a jar of salsa and coudn't imagine anything more disgusting than fudge with salsa in it. Then, I read the recipe. It is wonderful although I generally just use a pound of cheddar cheese.

I have tried it with low-fat cheese which takes care of the oil problems, but then it sticks to the pan. For best results, I use ? a pound of full-fat cheese on the bottom and then ? a pound of low-fat cheese on the top.

Probably the easiest appetizer I ever made other than pouring salsa in a bowl and dumping chips in a basket! It was very tasty although it was a little too warm when I served it...should have let it cool off more, but that was my fault. It was definitely better after it cooled some, far less greasy. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

This was one of the items in our Mexican pot luck luncheon, and everyone wanted the recipe. Nobody could believe that it was so simple to make. We always have way too much food, but this one disappeared completely. Thanks Stewie!

These were very tasty...I used pepper jack instead of regular monterey jack to add extra zip!!

Made this for an Italian family party. They all loved it. Have made it many times since and am always asked for the recipe. I did kick it up a notch with some cayenne pepper. The name is really clever!

Very good. A little oily, but hey, it's cheese! Next time I will sprinkle some chopped black olives on top for color and variety, but this recipe is wonderful without any additives.

I was a little nervous making this for a group of people after reading the last 2 reviews, but went ahead and made and boy am I ever glad I did. This is wonderful. Everyone asked for the recipe. The only thing I did different was I used 1 1/2 cups of homemade salsa instead of just 1/2 cup. We will be making this again and again.

I really wanted to like this. I made it to take to a party of around 100 people and it did not go over well at all. It was extremely oily and didn't look appetizing. The texture and taste weren't special either. Sorry Stewie...

Made it for my book club tonight. Used shredded cheddar cheese and monterey jack cheese. I didn't like it and neither did anyone else. Sounded good but didn't appeal to the 12 of us.
