    I thought the salsa overpowered the other flavors a bit for me.

    And a High Five at that! As you know I didn't make it but I'm thrilled that you did :) Betcha can't eat just one...or two...or... Seriously folks you have to make these - they were wonderful and DH has asked 3 times in 4 days "so when are you going to learn to make them". I also love that they are baked not fried. Thanks CL!!!

    Was looking for something the kids would enjoy for dinner and found it! Only change I made was to use whole wheat bread crumbs instead of saltines. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
