This is very simple to make and (when using mild salsa) kids love it. You can make it as spicy as you like!

Served with sour cream on the side, I used medium salsa, so it was a bit hot for some and perfect for others

This was very good, quick and easy to make. I didn't have enough salsa so I added a can of Rotel tomatoes and boy was it spicy! I will make this again but next time I'll make sure I have enough salsa, lol. Thanks Parsley.
