READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by Dragonflyjoy

I've made this for a while now and I finally measured out everything tonight. The salsa gives it a bit of a kick, but it is still mild enough to be enjoyed by my kids.

For a vegetarian version, replace the ground beef with lightly fried Quorn (meat substitute). Spice up the sauce with a few chopped Jalapenos, and add a few breadcrumbs to the sprinkled cheese for a nice crunchy texture on top. We also had problems getting Monterey Jack cheese so used a smoked cheddar instead. Absolutely delicious and will be made again!
